For the second time this week, another man on Ohio's Death Row escaped execution. But only one man walked out of prison free. Governor Ted Strickland commuted the death sentence of John Spirko to life without parole ... while Ken Richey was released for good after serving two decades on Death Row. The court said the conviction was based on insufficient evidence. We'll talk about Death Row doubts, Friday at 9 on The Sound of Ideas.
