Clarance Carter, Ohio

 

April 12, 2011

Clarence Carter was executed by the state of Ohio on April 12, 2011. Clarence was pronounced dead at 10:25 am EDT, inside the execution chamber at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Mansfield, Ohio. Clarence was 49 years of age. He was executed for the murder of 33-year-old Johnny Allen, Jr., on January 11, 1989, in the Hamilton County Jail Annex in Cincinnati, Ohio. Clarence was at the facility awaiting sentencing for an aggravated murder charge, when he beat Johnny to death. Johnny died after two weeks in the hospital. Clarence spent the last 22 years of his life on Ohio’s death row.

Clarence did not have an easy childhood. His stepfather would beat him when he stuttered and his cousin would pay him to fight with other children. Allegedly, Clarence was a “hit man” for a group of Cincinnati drug traffickers.

Please pray for peace and healing for the family of Johnny Allen, Jr. Please pray for the family of Clarence Carter.
