LUCASVILLE, OH (WTAQ) - A man who started a multi-state crime spree in Wisconsin 19 years ago was executed Wednesday morning in Ohio.
48-year-old Frederick Treesh was pronounced dead at 9:37 a.m. by the warden of a Southern Ohio prison where lethal injection was given.
Media reports said Treesh started his crime spree in far southern Wisconsin, by robbing a branch of what was then known as Anchor Savings and Loan in Delavan. He then went on to commit other robberies, sexual assaults, and car-jackings.
Treesh killed a video store clerk in Michigan, before his spree ended with the slaying of an adult bookstore security guard in Eastlake Ohio near Cleveland.
Treesh had no appeals for stopping today’s execution. The Ohio Parole Board and Governor John Kasich recently refused to grant him clemency.
In his last statement, Treesh apologized for the security guard’s murder, but he said he would not apologize for the Michigan murder because he was never charged for it.
Ohio was the only state that prosecuted his offenses.
