Less than three weeks from now, death row inmate Jason Getsy might be dead. He's scheduled to be executed on August 18th for the 1995 murder of 66 year old Youngstown resident Ann Serafino, and for shooting and wounding her adult son. Recently, the Ohio Parole Board ruled that Getsy should be given clemency for the murder-for-hire crime because the man who ordered it, and could be considered equally culpable, was not given a death sentence. It's now up to Governor Ted Strickland to decide Getsy's fate. He's being held at the Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown right now. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles recently met with Getsy there and she files this report.
