Local Murderer Executed Late Tuesday Morning

LUCASVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Ohio has executed a man convicted of hunting down and killing his ex-wife 13 years ago.

Officials say James Filiaggi was pronounced dead at 11:23 a-m.  The execution had been scheduled for 10 a-m but was delayed while prison officials awaited word from the U-S Supreme Court.

It chose to reject Filiaggi's appeal.
