CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Ohio Gov. John Kasich granted clemency for a Toledo-area killer who was two weeks away from execution.

Kasich's decision Monday to spare William Montgomery's life comes 10 days after the Ohio Parole Board voted 6-4 to recommend mercy for him.

The board's report showed the majority had too many questions over inconsistent witness statements that weren't disclosed to Montgomery when he was on trial and whether the jury made its decision on sound grounds.

Montgomery, 52, was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on April 11.

He has been in prison since 1986 and was sentenced to death for the murder of Deborah Ogle during a robbery. He was also convicted of murdering Cynthia Tincher, Ogle's roommate.
