In January 2014, Dennis McGuire was executed in Ohio using a new two-drug execution process. The execution took longer than expected, with debate over whether Dennis was full unconscious for the execution.


In January of 2015, Ohio announced that it would not carry out any executions this year in order to allow the state to obtain execution drugs and implement a new execution protocol. Read more information here. Along with this announcement, Ohio also rescheduled all 2015 executions. Angelo’s execution is now scheduled for May 18, 2016.  (Ohio has continued to have ongoing problems carrying out executions.  Read the updated news here.)


Please pray for peace and healing for the family of Antwuan Gilliam. Please pray for strength for the family of Angelo. Please pray that if Angelo is innocent, or lacks the competency to be executed, evidence will be presented prior to his execution. Please pray that Angelo will come to find peace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, if he has not already.
