Ohio executes Jason Getsy

Jason Getsy, who was convicted of the 1995 murder of a Hubbard woman in her late sixties was executed Tuesday morning.

Getsy was pronounced dead at 10:29 a.m.

A last minute appeal to the Supreme Court was denied Monday.

Getsy,33, was denied clemency by Governor Ted Strickland on Friday, and was executed by lethal injection at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Strickland denied clemency, despite a recommendation by the state parole board that it be granted.

In his statement, Strickland said the evidence against Getsy was too strong to warrant commuting his sentence to life in prison.

21 News Reporter Janet Rogers is in Lucasville covering the execution.

She will have more at 12, 6 and 11.
