Governor denies clemency request for convicted Akron killer Brett Hartman

AKRON, Ohio - Gov. John Kasich denied clemency for convicted Akron killer Brett Hartman.

The 38-year-old is scheduled to die Nov. 13 in Lucasville for the 1997 slaying of Winda Snipes.

Three days ago, a federal judge rejected the death row inmate's request to delay his upcoming execution over allegations that the state continues to deviate from its written execution policies.

Hartman argued that the state altered its procedures during April and September executions.

The Ohio Parole Board unanimously recommended against clemency in October for Hartman.

Snipes was stabbed more than 100 times, her throat slit and hands cut off. Her hands have never been found.
