ASHTABULA, Ohio - A man already on Ohio’s death row was convicted of the 1997 murder of an Ashtabula man.
On Wednesday, a jury found John Drummond Jr., 36, guilty of aggravated murder, kidnapping and gun specifications in the February 1997 shooting death of Ronald Hull.
"Even when a case is years old, it's still possible to achieve justice," Attorney General DeWine said in a news release. "This is one reason why we continue to highlight unsolved homicides and encourage anyone with information to come forward."
Earlier this year, Drummond and five other men were indicted in the murder. The other suspects pleaded guilty to kidnapping charges and were sentenced to prison time, but Drummond was identified by witnesses as the gunman.
Drummond will be sentenced on Friday and faces a minimum sentenced of 28 years to life in prison.
Drummond was convicted for the murder of a 3-year-old boy in a drive-by shooting in Youngstown in 2003. He was sentenced to death, but on Monday, an appeals court ruled he should get a new trial because the trial judge made a mistake.
