(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Today, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine issued the following three reprieves of execution:

  • Kareem Jackson, who was scheduled to be executed on September 16, 2020.  The new date of execution has been moved to September 15, 2022. 
  • Stanley Fitzpatrick, who was scheduled to be executed on October 14, 2020.  The new date of execution has been moved to February 15, 2023. 
  • David Sneed, who was scheduled to be executed on December 9, 2020.  The new date of execution has been moved to April 19, 2023.
