Ohio Court To Hear Former Death Row Inmate's Claim

The case against him fell apart on appeal, and he was freed in 1990. Another man confessed in 2008 to killing the couple.

Governor Kasich’s private job creation entity, JobsOhio, has been at the center of controversy since it began. Because it's partially a private board, it's free from some of the regulations and public scrutiny that government organizations face.

A lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of JobsOhio was brought before the Ohio Supreme Court this week. But as Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler tells Emily McCord, before that decision can be made, the question of who is allowed to sue JobsOhio must be settled first.
