The state has executed a former prison slaughterhouse worker convicted of killing a couple, dismembering their bodies and stashing parts in trash bins around Columbus. Fifty-two-year-old William Wickline is the eleventh inmate to die by injection since Ohio resumed executions five years ago. He was pronounced dead at 10:11 am at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.
