Gov. Kasich Rejects Clemency For Condemned Ohio Killer Of 2
Ohio Gov. John Kasich has rejected clemency for a condemned killer of two men, including a suburban Cleveland police officer who had rushed to the scene of the shooting.
Kasich’s decision Wednesday means Harry Mitts will most likely be put to death Sept. 25 for killing the pair during a 1994 outburst at his Garfield Heights apartment.
Court records show the 61-year-old Mitts uttered racial slurs before shooting his first victim, John Bryant, who was black.
Mitts fired on two police officers as they approached his apartment where he’d taken refuge, wounding one and killing the second, Garfield Heights Sgt. Dennis Glivar.
The state’s supply of pentobarbital, the drug it will use on Mitts, expires at the end of September, requiring a new method for future executions.
