Keenan, 62, was twice convicted of killing Klann in 1988 in Cleveland’s Rockefeller Park. D’Ambrosio, who also was convicted of killing Klann, was freed in 2009 after a federal judge determined that evidence that could have exonerated him had been withheld from his trial attorneys.
Another federal judge ruled in April that Keenan had to be tried again or have his verdict set aside.
Both Keenan and D’Ambrosio spent many years on death row, always professing their innocence.
You know why they kept professing their innocence? Seems like it’s because they were innocent.
You know why they remained in prison for two decades? Because the state didn’t care that they had the wrong guys on death row.
So, Ohio, how’s that whole death penalty system working out for you?
