APNewsBreak: Condemned Ohio killer tried unsuccessfully to delay execution with organ donation
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, January 15, 2014 1:52 PM EST
Documents show a condemned Ohio killer facing a never-tried lethal injection method attempted unsuccessfully to delay his execution by requesting he become an organ donor.
Kasich rejected the request this month because McGuire couldn't identify a family member to receive the organs. That's according to documents obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press through a public records request.
The 53-year-old McGuire is scheduled to die Thursday for the 1989 rape and fatal stabbing of Joy Stewart in Preble County in western Ohio.
McGuire was moved to the state death house in southern Ohio on Wednesday.
