TICK, TOCK, TICK, TOCK IN OHIO
Convicted child killer running out of time
As Robert Buell's appointment to die draws closer, his attorneys have begun what promises to be a flurry of court filings to save his life.
Buell has been on death row for 18 years. Public defenders concede that his appeal avenues have hit a dead end and inroads to a stay of his execution within the next two weeks are narrowing.
All that remains is a clemency request and a motion for a new trial. There is no appeal that will guarantee a delay.
