DeWine Delays Three Scheduled Executions

Jun 9, 2020

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has delayed three additional executions as the state struggles to find an adequate supply of lethal injection drugs. 

Kareem Jackson, Stanley Fitzpatrick, and David Sneed were scheduled to die in September, October and December, respectively. Their executions were moved to dates in 2022 and 2023. DeWine again blamed the reprieves on the state's inability to obtain drugs from pharmaceutical companies. DeWine issued similar reprieves in December, February and April.
