Ohio carries out its 50th execution since 1999

The 4th Execution of 2013

Frederick Treesh, a man who fatally shot an adult bookstore security guard in 1994 at the end of a multistate crime spree, was executed in Ohio on March 6, 2013, reported The Associated Press.

Treesh, 48, received a single powerful dose of pentobarbital and was pronounced dead at 10:37 a.m. by Donald Morgan, warden of the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

Treesh was sentenced to die for killing Henry Dupree in Eastlake, east of Cleveland, on Aug. 27, 1994.

In a last statement, Treesh apologized for the death of Dupree, but said he wouldn't say he was sorry to family members of a video store clerk killed in Michigan who were witnessing the execution.

"I've never been tried, I've never been charged," he said.

After a few more comments he said, "If you want me murdered, just say it."

Treesh was the 50th inmate put to death by the state since it resumed executions in 1999.
