A man facing execution for a murder in Ohio has never been prosecuted for killing a Michigan video store operator during the same multistate crime spree.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich rejected a clemency plea Thursday by 48-year-old Frederick Treesh, whose execution is scheduled Wednesday.
Treesh awaits execution for shooting 58-year-old Henry Dupree during a robbery of an adult book store in Eastlake, Ohio, on Aug. 27, 1994.
Prosecutors say Treesh and Benjamin Brooks carried out crimes across Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Authorities say the men robbed a woman at a Plymouth motel and shot two brothers at their Best Videos store in Livonia, killing 39-year-old Gus Danno. They say the pair then forced their way into a Livonia couple's home, beat the woman and stole their car.
