    Ohio killer on death row proclaims innocence: Asks his life be spared from next month's execution

    Warren Keith Henness is facing the death penalty for the 1992 murder of 51-year-old Richard Meyers

    By Andrew Welsh-Huggins
    Associated Press

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — An Ohio man sentenced to death in the fatal shooting of a volunteer addiction counselor is proclaiming his innocence and asking that his life be spared, according to arguments by his attorneys a month before his scheduled execution.

    Warren Keith Henness, who goes by his middle name, was convicted of killing 51-year-old Richard Meyers in Columbus in 1992. Myers, who was a lab technician at a veterans hospital in Chillicothe in southern Ohio, frequently volunteered with Alcoholics Anonymous to assist people with addictions and had been helping Henness find drug treatment for his wife, according to authorities.

    The Ohio Parole Board scheduled arguments for and against mercy Thursday. Henness is set to die by lethal injection on Feb. 13 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

    Prosecutors said Henness kidnapped Myers, bound and then shot him at an abandoned water treatment plant, and then stole his credit cards, checks and car.

    Henness, his wife Tabatha Henness, and friend Ronald Fair drove around in Myers' car for several days afterward, forging the checks and using the credit cards, according to prosecutors.

    Henness, 55, has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence and did so again in an interview with the Ohio Parole Board last month.

    The board will announce its decision next week. Republican Gov.-elect Mike DeWine, scheduled to be sworn in this weekend, will have the final say on clemency.

    Henness' wife and their friend were also implicated in the killing and provided the only evidence of Henness' guilt, according to court records. The two pleaded guilty to minor charges of forgery and then testified against Henness at trial.

    Henness' attorneys have argued he deserves mercy because of lingering questions about the others' involvement in the killing.

    In addition, they say Henness' defense lawyers at the time failed to fully investigate the case ahead of trial. Henness distrusted one of his attorneys so much that he rejected a plea deal that would have spared his life, according to Henness' clemency petition.

    "Even though Keith has consistently maintained his innocence of the murder of Richard Myers, he would have been eligible for parole already had he agreed to the plea terms the prosecution indicated it was willing to accept," David Stebbins, a federal public defender, said in a filing with the board earlier this month.

    Henness has a consistent record of good behavior in jail and on death row, also making him a good candidate for mercy, Stebbins said.

    Prosecutors argue Henness has a history of lying and refusing to take responsibility for the killing. The death row inmate is now pointing the finger at his wife "on the eve of his execution" after protecting her as the mother of their children for years, Ron O'Brien, the Franklin County prosecutor, told the board in a filing this month.

    Henness' "elaborate and ever-changing stories simply do not fit the evidence in this case," O'Brien said. "Rather than show he is innocent of ... Richard's murder, his lies demonstrate a patent refusal to accept responsibility for his crimes."

    Don't expect mercy for this druggie thug now that that spineless RINO Kasich is gone. DeWine won't fall for "innocence" claims, nor will he care if a former juror turns into a crybaby like the case of that crackhead Tibbets.

    Ohio board rejects condemned killer’s request for mercy

    By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS
    The Associated Press

    The Ohio Parole Board on Friday rejected a clemency request by a condemned killer who says he's innocent of the fatal shooting of a volunteer addiction counselor and is asking that his life be spared.

    Warren Keith Henness, who goes by his middle name, was convicted of killing 51-year-old Richard Meyers in Columbus in 1992.

    Myers was a lab technician at a veterans hospital in Chillicothe in southern Ohio and frequently volunteered with Alcoholics Anonymous to assist people with addictions. He had been helping Henness find drug treatment for his wife, according to authorities.

    Henness' claim of innocence is not persuasive and his account of the killing not reliable, the board said in its unanimous ruling.

    "Henness admitted he had told his attorneys so many stories that they did not know what was true," the board said.

    The inmate is set to die by lethal injection on Feb. 13 at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. Gov. Mike DeWine has the final say, his first death penalty decision as governor. A message was left with his office seeking comment.

    Prosecutors said Henness kidnapped Myers, bound and then shot him at an abandoned water treatment plant, and then stole his credit cards, checks and car.

    Henness, 55, his wife Tabatha Henness, and friend Ronald Fair drove around in Myers' car for several days afterward, forging the checks and using the credit cards, according to prosecutors.

    Henness' wife and their friend were also implicated in the killing and provided the only evidence of Henness' guilt, according to court records. The two pleaded guilty to minor charges of forgery and then testified against Henness at trial.

    Henness' attorneys have argued he deserves mercy because of lingering questions about the others' involvement in the killing.

    In addition, they say Henness' lawyers at the time failed to fully investigate the case ahead of trial. Henness distrusted one of his attorneys so much that he rejected a plea deal that would have spared his life, according to Henness' clemency petition.

    Henness has a consistent record of good behavior in jail and on death row, also making him a good candidate for mercy, David Stebbins, a federal public defender, said in a filing with the board this month.

    The parole board disagreed, noting Henness has a history of alcohol infractions in prison and contributed to problems with his attorneys through his unwillingness to provide consistent details.

    Stebbins called the ruling disappointing and urged DeWine to judge the request for mercy independently. "Henness is facing execution next month because of the failures of the legal system, not because he is one of the exceptional few worthy of the ultimate punishment of death," Stebbins said.

    Prosecutors argue Henness has a history of lying and refusing to take responsibility for the killing.

    Ohioans To Stop Executions, the state's largest anti-death penalty group, urged DeWine to postpone executions until problems with Ohio's capital punishment system identified by a state Supreme Court commission are addressed.
