Ohio parole board recommends Governor spare life of person with MR/ID - J. Murphy

The Ohio Parole Board is recommending to the Governor to spare Joseph Murphy, a person with MR/ID and a lengthy history of childhood abuse, from execution. If the above link becomes dated, then click here for the original Sentencing and Law blog post where I learned of this recommendation

Prior decisions regarding J. Murphy can be found at the ICDP blog by clicking here, where a number of court decisions were posted one day, without comment.
