CINCINNATI (AP) - The state’s leading anti-death penalty group plans a series of forums to publicize the work of a Supreme Court panel that reviewed Ohio’s capital punishment law.

The panel’s upcoming final report includes recommendations that it says could reduce the role of race in capital punishment along with disparities in death cases by county.

Ohioans to Stop Executions planned an event Wednesday evening at the College of Mount Saint Joseph in Cincinnati following a similar event Tuesday in a different part of the state.

The court task force was convened by Ohio Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor and worked more than two years on the final report of 56 recommendations.

Prosecutors on the panel have criticized many of the proposals as attempts to make the law all but unworkable.
