FILE- This undated file photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction shows Arthur Tyler. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty planned Monday, April 21, 2014, to submit his position on whether condemned killer Tyler, who is facing execution next month for a Cleveland produce vendor’s 1983 slaying, should receive mercy. Attorneys for defendant Tyler say he should receive clemency partly because a second defendant repeatedly admitted being the shooter.

FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction shows Dennis McGuire. Condemned inmate McGuire made gasp-like snoring sounds for several minutes during his 26-minute execution on Jan. 16, the longest since Ohio resumed putting inmates to death in 1999. Ohio’s most recent batches of lethal injection drugs were produced by a company that wants states to stop using them for capital punishment, records show. Lake Forest, Ill.-based Hospira Inc. says it manufactures the drugs, the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromophone, to enhance and save the lives of patients it helps treat. The company says it objects to their use in capital punishment. (AP Photo/Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, File)

FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction shows inmate Dennis McGuire. Initial reviews of an execution in which McGuire repeatedly gasped found no reason to change the way Ohio puts condemned prisoners to death. The reviews, required by prison rules, found that the state execution policy was followed, and execution and medical team members did what they were supposed to.(AP Photo/Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, File)
