Sat., 5:05p.m.: Gov. Kasich delays killer’s execution

COLUMBUS (AP) – Republican Gov. John Kasich on Friday granted an eight-month reprieve to a condemned killer following last month’s execution of an inmate who repeatedly gasped in the state’s longest lethal-injection procedure.

The ruling by Kasich delays until Nov. 19 the execution of Gregory Lott, sentenced to die for setting an 82-year-old man on fire during a break-in and leaving him to die.
