LUCASVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is preparing to execute a white gunman who spewed racial slurs before fatally shooting a black man and a police officer in a 1994 rampage at his suburban Cleveland apartment complex. The lethal injection is the last before the state's supply of execution drug expires.
Sixty-one-year-old Harry Mitts Jr. is scheduled to die Wednesday at the state prison in Lucasville after years of acknowledging his crimes and saying he's repented.
Mitts was convicted of aggravated murder and attempted murder in the rampage against random neighbors and responding police officers. He killed John Bryant, a neighbor's black boyfriend, and a white Garfield Heights police sergeant, Dennis Glivar (GLEE'-var).
Mitts has been on constant watch heading into the 10 a.m. execution after two recent high-profile prison suicides.
