A man waiting for capital punishment for murdering his ex’s folks with a heavy hammer is getting another meeting after the Ohio Supreme Court controlled his IQ may be too low for him to have been denounced.
Shawn Ford Jr. was indicted in Summit County in 2015 of disturbing homicide and different charges in the slayings of Margaret and Jeffrey Schobert two years sooner.
Guard lawyers contended that Ford’s low IQ ought to have kept the judge from condemning their customer to death. The high court’s 5-2 decision Thursday maintained Ford’s conviction however requested a meeting to decide whether his scholarly inability disallows his execution.
Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh said the judge and legal hearers effectively established that Ford ought to be condemned to death.
