Ohio Governor John Kasich has granted clemency to a death row inmate who claims he’s too obese to be executed.

A death row inmate trying to delay his execution because of his extreme weight is appealing a judge's ruling denying his claim.

Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will says a death row inmate  trying to delay his execution because he's obese is now raising an innocence claim.
