COLUMBUS, Ohio – A condemned killer of two people has arrived at the southern Ohio prison where the state carries out executions.
Prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says Gary Otte (OH'-tee) arrived at the Southern Ohio correctional Facility in Lucasville at 9:46 a.m. Tuesday. He's scheduled to die at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Smith says that Otte's requested final meal, called the special meal in Ohio, includes a mushroom and Swiss cheese hamburger, a quart of Heath Bar ice cream and a slice of banana cream pie.
Otte was convicted of the 1992 killings of Robert Wasikowski (wah-sih-KOW'-skee) and Sharon Kostura. Both slayings took place in Parma, in suburban Cleveland.
The state plans to execute the 45-year-old Otte with a lethal combination of three drugs.
