Death Row May Not Come to Toledo After All

(Toledo, OH) Plans to move Ohio's death row inmates to Toledo may not happen after all. 

Ohio's condemned inmates are staying put for now-- and it appears plans to move death row for the third time in a decade are in doubt. 

State prison officials announced the possible move last fall from Chillicothe to the  Toledo Correctional Institution because of the growing number of aging inmates serving death sentences. Toledo's prison is more modern and designed to handle inmates with physical and mobility issues. 

But Ohio won a recent court battle and is moving toward executions again, which occur in southern Ohio-- possibly prompting a permanent delay in the move to Toledo. 

North Toledo neighborhood leaders around the prison and a union representing prison guards are against any such move.
