Death Row Inmate Too Fat For Execution
COLUMBUS, OH (KPLR) – An Ohio death row inmate is trying to delay his execution because of his weight. Ronald Post weighs about 480lbs. His attorneys say he’s “so big” they could have trouble finding a vein for the lethal injection and the execution-gurney might not hold him. PLUS, They say any attempt to execute him could be, “painful and torturous.”
He’s scheduled to be put-to-death in January.
