Ohio Parole Board: No Clemency For Hamilton County Man

The Ohio Parole Board is recommending Governor John Kasich deny clemency for a convicted killer from Hamilton county scheduled to be executed next month.

In a 9-0 ruling released Wednesday morning, the Board said Daniel Lee Bedford stalked his ex-girlfriend Gwen Toepfert and her current boyfriend Johnny Smith before killing them outside Toepfert’s apartment in 1984.

The board also said Bedford knew from difference between right and wrong and that he does not appear to be suffering from severe dementia, as he has claimed.
