SB 20 Passes the House

The Ohio House of Representatives passed SB 20 by a vote of 96-0, a bill that will hopefully clarify state law (jurisdictional statutes R.C. 2901.11 and 2901.12) that prompted the Ohio Supreme Court to throw out the death penalty of a man convicted in a 1999 double murder because the two Ohio victims were slain in Pennsylvania. The Ohio Senate had previously passed the bill by a vote of 31-0.
