commutation death penalty

Gov. Commutes Death Sentence of Kevin Keith!

Great news!  Ohio Governor Ted Strickland has commuted the death sentence of Kevin Keith to life without parole.  Here’s an excerpt from his statement:

“… despite the evidence supporting his guilt and the substantial legal review of Mr. Keith’s conviction, many legitimate questions have been raised regarding the evidence in support of the conviction and the investigation which led to it.  In particular, Mr. Keith’s conviction relied upon the linking of certain eyewitness testimony with certain forensic evidence about which important questions have been raised.  I also find the absence of a full investigation of other credible suspects troubling.”
