Ohio is just two weeks away from executing another convicted murderer.

Governor John Kasich has denied a request for executive clemency from Billy Slagle.  Slagle was convicted of aggravated murder, burglary and robbery in 1988 for killing Mari Anne Pope, in Cuyahoga County.

He's scheduled to be executed August 7th at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, in Lucasville.  Right now, he's incarcerated at the Chillicothe Correctional Institution.

Last week, the Ohio Parole Board recommended against clemency for Slagle by a vote of 6-4.

Slagle will be the third person to be executed in Ohio this year.  The last execution was May 1, when Steven Smith, of Mansfield, was put to death.  He was convicted of aggravated murder for killing 6-month-old Autumn Carter in 1998.
