Friday's decision will come a little less than a month ahead of 48-year-old Frederick Treesh's scheduled execution on March 6.

Treesh was sentenced to die for shooting 58-year-old Henry Dupree during a robbery in Eastlake in northeast Ohio on Aug. 27, 1994, following a series of crimes in Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
