The Marion man whose 1994 death sentence for the rape and slaying of a woman was overturned by an appeals court has been resentenced to 26 years to life in prison. 

The court said 55-year-old Maurice Mason had ineffective counsel during the penalty phase of his trial in the slaying of 19-year-old Robin Dennis.  Mason launched an unsuccessful legal challenge of Ohio's death penalty law.
