Oldest inmate on Ohio’s death row has died . . . of COVID-19

There was a execution scheduled for next in Ohio. The execution was to be carried out on October 20, 2021.  The execution chamber at Franklin Medical Prison in Columbus will be empty on Wednesday--James Frazier, the oldest inmate on death row died of COVID-19.

Seventy-nine-year-old James Frazier died last fall but COVID-19 got in the way and then it took his life before teh executioner could get his hands on him. In recent months, his attorneys had sought to block execution, saying he suffered from dementia and had little idea where he was.

Frazier had been sentenced to death in 2005 for killing 49-year-old Mary Stevenson during a robbery. She was killed in March 2004 when Frazier strangled her, cut her throat and fled with two of her purses.
