Governor Kasich issued the reprieve in light of a letter he received on January 30 from a juror on Tibbetts’ case. The execution was scheduled for February 13. Because the Ohio Parole Board issued its report and recommendation without considering the letter, Kasich has asked the board to convene a hearing for the purpose of considering the letter and the issue it raises.
In his letter, the juror said that he would not have voted 20 years ago to execute Tibbetts if he’d known the extent to which Tibbetts was abused as a child.
