SUPCO Upholds Sentence Of Ohio's Lone Female Death Row Inmate


The Ohio Supreme Court has for the third time upheld the death sentence of the state's lone female death row inmate. 73-year-old Donna Roberts was sentenced to death for a third time in 2014. In the past, the court said a prosecutor improperly helped prepare a sentencing motion and a judge hadn't fully considered factors that could argue against a death sentence. The court rejected arguments that allowing a new judge to sentence Roberts after the original judge died was unconstitutional. Nathanial Jackson was also convicted in the case.
