State Relocating Death Row to Southern Ohio Prison
Ohio is relocating death row to a southern Ohio prison close to the state’s death house to save money and open up beds for violent inmates.
The move from the supermaximum prison in Youngstown to the Chillicothe Correctional Institution would bring together 117 death row inmates currently housed in Youngstown and 29 housed at
Mansfield Correctional Institution in a mental health unit.
The decision announced Monday adds 300 high-security cells in Mansfield and Youngstown for inmates involved in violent acts against prison staff and other inmates at lower security facilities.
The move also saves money for the state, which currently spends $1,200 to move an inmate to the death house at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.
The move is the third for Ohio’s death row since 1981.
