Ohio opposes Akron condemned killer Brett Hartman's delay request

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio is asking a judge to deny a condemned killer's request to delay his upcoming execution over allegations that the state continues to deviate from its written execution policies.

The Office of Attorney General Mike DeWine says death row inmate Brett Hartman hasn't provided any proof he's at risk for severe pain during his Nov. 13 execution.

DeWine's office said in a court filing Wednesday that Hartman also hasn't provided evidence that any alleged changes to the state's written procedures would cause him suffering.

Hartman argued last month without giving examples that the state altered its procedures during April and September executions.

The 38-year-old Hartman was sentenced to die for the Sept. 9, 1997, slaying of 46-year-old Winda Snipes of Akron.
