Lag says ‘I’m too fat to fry’

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

LAWYERS for a pris­oner fac­ing the death penalty say he is TOO FAT to ex­e­cute.

Ron­ald Post, who shot and killed a ho­tel clerk in north­ern Ohio al­most 30 years ago, says his 34st weight, vein ac­cess, scar tis­sue and other med­i­cal prob­lems raise se­vere prob­lems for top­ping him.

Lawyers for the 53-yearold also said the in­mate of Ohio State Pir­son is so big the ex­e­cu­tion gur­ney might not hold him.

A Fed­eral Court fil­ing also said Post is now dis­cour­aged from walk­ing be­cause he is at risk for fall­ing, and suf­fers from de­pres­sion, mak­ing him eat more.

It adds that given Post’s phys­i­cal con­di­tion there is a sub­stan­tial risk that any at­tempt to ex­e­cute him will re­sult in se­ri­ous phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal pain to him.

Post is sched­uled to die on Jan­uary 16.
