Ohio governor grants clemency for death row inmate

Email

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Gov. Ted Strickland on Thursday spared the life of a death row inmate who killed his mother in a cocaine-induced rage and whose upcoming execution was opposed by his entire family, including his mother's siblings.

Jeffrey Hill, 44, had been scheduled to die by lethal injection March 3. But Strickland said he agrees with the Ohio Parole Board, which recommended last week that Hill not be put to death and should eventually be released from prison.
