Ohio Governor John Kasich says he will not spare a condemned killer.

45-year-old Gary Otte was sentenced to die for 1992 murders in Parma. Kasich on Friday rejected his request for clemency, following the Ohio Parole Board's recommendation. Otte is scheduled to die September 13. Kasich also announced he's pushing back execution dates for three inmates after reviewing the schedule to be sure procedures were carried out humanely and professionally.
