Ohio Rejects Child Killer’s Organ Donation Request

Ohio says it is denying a condemned child killer’s request to donate organs to family members, a bid that halted his execution last year.

A lawyer for the prisons system says the death row inmate, Ronald Phillips, will not be allowed to donate organs after Sunday, the latest time he could have the surgery and still recuperate in time for his July 2 execution.

Stephen Gray, chief counsel for the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, wrote in a letter to Phillips’ attorney Friday the state “fully intends” to carry out Phillips’ execution in July.

Gov. John Kasich delayed the execution of the 40-year-old Phillips last fall for the 1993 rape and killing of Sheila Marie Evans, his girlfriend’s daughter.

Phillips’ attorney, Tim Sweeney, declined to comment.
