Execution halted for child murderer who wants to donate heart
By Rene Lynch Los Angeles Times An Ohio man slated to die this week for the rape and murder of a 3-year-old won a stay of execution Wednesday with a last-minute offer to donate his heart and other organs. An attorney for Ronald Phillips, 40, has said that the bid is not a stalling tactic, but an effort by the condemned man to do some good with his final breath.
