Posted by


The Ohio Supreme Court has set an execution date in 2020 for a man sentenced to die for beating a mother to death and raping and strangling her 12-year-old daughter.

Death row inmate Stanley Adams was sentenced to die for the 1999 killings of 43-year-old Esther Cook and her daughter Ashley Cook in Warren in northeastern Ohio.
The Supreme Court on Friday scheduled Adams’ execution for April 16, 2020. A jury convicted the 50-year-old inmate of the killings, which he denied committing.
