Ohio executions halted for policy check

– Ohio executions have been put on hold for 2 1/2 months after a federal judge allowed more time for arguments over the state’s new lethal injection procedures.

The order, in place until Aug. 15, delays executions scheduled for July and August while attorneys prepare filings about the state’s decision to boost dosages of its lethal injection drugs.

The one-page order by Columbus federal Judge Gregory Frost on Tuesday affects the death penalty policy change the state announced in April.

Ohio uses two drugs injected simultaneously in executions. The policy change considerably increases the amount of the sedative and raises the amount of the painkiller.

Following the end of the moratorium, the next execution is scheduled for Oct. 15.
