LUCASVILLE — Ohiocarried out its 49th executionof the modern era smoothlywhile facing the possibilityof a protracted legal battleahead of the 50th executionnext year.Brett Hartman wasdeclared dead at 10:34 a.m.Tuesday, about 17 minutesafter the single powerfuldose of pentobarbital beganflowing into his veins.“I’m good, let’s roll,”Hartman said after declin-ing a final statement.He then smiled in thedirection of his sister andrepeatedly gave her, a friendand his attorney a “thumbsup” with his left hand.“This is not going to defeatme,” Hartman then said towarden Donald Morgan,who didn’t respond.Hartman was sentencedto die for stabbing WindaSnipes of Akron 138 times,slitting her throat and cut-ting off her hands.The effect of the pen-tobarbital did not seem asimmediate as in other exe-cutions at the state prisonin Lucasville, in southernOhio. Four minutes afterHartman first appeared tobe reacting to it as his abdo-men began to rise and fall,his abdomen rose and fellagain, he coughed and hishead shifted rhythmicallyfor a few moments.His sister, Diane Morretti,dabbed at her eyes duringthe process.Both Hartman’s attorney,David Stebbins, and pris-ons system spokeswomanJoEllen Smith said the gapbetween Hartman’s move-ments was not out of theordinary.Hartman was the 49thinmate put to death sinceOhio resumed executions in1999.The next inmate sched-uled to die, Ronald Post,weighs more than 400pounds and wants his execu-tion stopped out of fear hewould suffer severe pain asexecutioners tried to accesshis veins, which his attor-neys argue would be all butimpossible because of hisweight.Post also says his weightcould break the gurney inthe death chamber. The statedisputes Post’s claims, andeven went so far as to place540 pounds of weights onthe gurney for two hours toprove him wrong.Hartman, 38, acknowl-edged that he had sex withSnipes early on the morningof Sept. 9, 1997 at her Akronapartment. He also says hewent back to Snipes’ apart-ment later that day, foundher mutilated body and pan-icked, trying to clean up themess before calling 911.But Hartman said hedidn’t kill her, a claimrejected by numerous courtsover the years.A former co-worker andfriend of Snipes who wit-nessed the execution saidafterward that the familywas relieved the case wasover and that the continu-ous rounds of appeals andmedia reports about the casewere at an end. JacquelineBrown of Doylestown innortheast Ohio also flatlydismissed Hartman’s inno-cence claim.“He’s very, very, veryguilty,” she said afterward.“Now Winda can be atpeace, and that’s what it’sall about.”Stebbins read a state-ment from Hartman’s fam-ily in which they professedhis innocence and asked foradditional testing of sceneevidence.“We hope that the tak-ing of Brett’s innocent lifemight serve as a wake-upcall to the flaws in our legalsystem,” the statement said.Mashed potatoes, pumpkinpies, popcorn, milk, corn onthe cob, and cranberries werenot foods present on the firstThanksgiving’s feast table.

Israeli airstrikekills Hamasmilitant chief
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip(AP) — An Israeli airstrikekilled the commander of the military wing of Gaza’sHamas rulers today, Hamasofficials and Israel confirmed,in a dramatic resumption of Israel’s policy of assassinatingPalestinian militant leaders.Ahmed Jabari was the mostsenior Hamas official to bekilled since an Israeli invasionof Gaza four years ago. Jabarihas long topped Israel’s most-wanted list and was notoriousin Israel, which blamed him forin a string of attacks, includingthe kidnapping of Israeli soldierGilad Schalit in 2006.Witnesses said Jabari wastraveling in a vehicle in GazaCity when the car exploded.Crowds of people and securitypersonnel rushed to the scene of the strike, trying to put out thefire that had engulfed the carand left it a charred shell.Hamas police cordoned off the area around a hospital whereat least one body from the strikewas taken. It was draped in awhite sheet, with a burned legpoking out. Hamas said anotherman was killed in the airstrike.Hamas police said threeother airstrikes hit other targetsin Gaza City, Khan Younis andRafah.Israeli officials had said thatthey were considering assassi-nating top Hamas officials fol-lowing a wave of rocket firefrom the Hamas-ruled GazaStrip at southern Israel, trig-gering Israeli airstrikes. Theexchanges appeared to be wan-ing on Tuesday, but the killingof Jabari is likely to re-ignitethe flare-up.Israeli military officials,speaking on condition of ano-nymity under army regulations,said Jabari was identified by“precise intelligence” gatheredover several months.Advocates say targetedkillings are an effective deter-rent without the complicationsassociated with a ground opera-tion, chiefly civilian and Israelitroop casualties. Proponentsargue they also prevent futureattacks by removing their mas-terminds.
