Federal appeals court ruled Ohio executions could resume
Cody Harding at 12:00 AM ET

On November 25, 2009, the stay of execution granted to Kenneth Biros was overturned by the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. The US District Court for the Southern District of Ohio originally issued the stay of execution in response to Eighth Amendment concerns about Ohio execution protocol. Biros was the fourth inmate granted such a stay following the failed execution of Romell Broom in September 2009. Kenneth Biros was ultimately executed on December 8, 2009 under new execution standards.
