(WOIO) - On Friday, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction announced revised execution dates for seven inmates in response to prior orders by U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Frost staying Ohio executions in order to allow DRC and defense counsel to continue necessary preparations for the adoption and implementation of the new execution protocol that became effective Jan. 9, 2015.  

The new dates are also designed to provide DRC adequate time to secure a supply of the new execution drugs. 

Scheduled execution dates for four inmates in 2016 remain unchanged.
