Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

LUCASVILLE, OH (WOIO) - Romell Broom will not be executed Tuesday after the execution effort failed last week.

Tuesday, Sept. 22nd was Broom's new execution date.

The execution team could not administer the lethal injection becuase they were unable to find a vein for two hours.

The Governor has put a temporary hold on the execution and has not released the new date yet. Broom is now back on death row.

53-year-old Broom was sentenced to death after convicted of raping a murdering 14-year-old Tryna Middleton in 1984.
