Death Row Inmate Declines Further Appeal
A condemned Ohio inmate scheduled to die next week for killing a teenager during a 1985 farmhouse robbery has decided not to appeal a judge’s order allowing the execution.
If put to death next week Mark Wiles would be the first inmate put to death in Ohio in six months following legal battles over the state’s execution policies.
Wiles’ attorney Allen Bohnert told The Associated Press Friday that Wiles was not appealing but declined to say why or comment further.
Wiles was sentenced to die for killing his employers’ son, 15-year-old Mark Klima in a Portage County farmhouse in 1985.
