Gov. Mike DeWine announced that he is halting executions until the state devises a new lethal injection protocol that overcomes any court challenges. He did not issue a formal stay of all executions but said “As long as the status quo remains, where we don’t have a protocol that has been found to be OK, we certainly cannot have any executions in Ohio. That would not be right, at least in my opinion.”
He directed prison officials to come up with a new protocol, which will likely face legal challenge in federal court.
Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, writing on behalf of the Catholic Bishops of Ohio, commended the Governor for this action.
