COLUMBUS, Ohio - Prison officials have moved a condemned killer from death row in Chillicothe to the state death house in southern Ohio ahead of Wednesday's execution.
Inmate Frederick Treesh was sentenced to die for the 1994 shooting death of a security guard following a multistate crime spree. Authorities say he shot 58-year-old Henry Dupree during a robbery of an adult book store in Eastlake on Aug. 27, 1994.
The state parole board voted unanimously against sparing Treesh, and Gov. John Kasich denied his request for mercy.
Treesh blames his actions on his cocaine addiction. Prosecutors say the crimes were intentional.
Treesh arrived at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday.
