COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Supreme Court has set a 2015 execution date for a man sentenced to die for fatally shooting a 17-year-old girl.
The court on Tuesday set the date as Nov. 17, 2015, for Cleveland Jackson, who also was convicted of killing a 3-year-old girl during the same robbery.
The 35-year-old Jackson received a death sentence for the 2002 shooting of 17-year-old Leneshia Williams during a robbery in a Lima apartment in which six others were wounded.
Jackson originally received a death sentence for the killing of 3-year-old Jala Grant the same day, but the state Supreme Court later reduced that to a life sentence.
Jackson's half brother, Jeronique Cunningham, also was sentenced to death.
