Parole Board Recommends Execution For Raymond Tibbetts

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction

The Ohio Parole Board is again recommending against clemency for a condemned killer.

The board announced its decision Friday in the case of 69-year-old Raymond Tibbetts, who is scheduled for execution on October 17. The board ruled against clemency, despite holding a second hearing last week in which a juror on Tibbetts' case said he regrets his decision to recommend execution. Ross Geiger came forward last year saying jurors weren't given enough information about Tibbetts' tough childhood. Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich has the final say. Tibbetts' attorney says the governor can prevent an "unjust death sentence from being carried out."
