OHIO GOVERNOR GRANTS CLEMENCY TO WOMAN FOR KILLING EX 

Ohio Governor John Kasich has finally commuted the sentence of a woman who killed her habitually abusive ex-boyfriend while he attacked her—after she’d already served 15 years in prison. Thomia Hunter was convicted of murdering Andrew Harris in 2005, but it wasn’t until this last June that the Ohio Parole Board recommended clemency on the basis of evidence not presented at her trial. But new evidence related to battered woman’s syndrome—a subcategory of PTSD—apparently convinced the parole board that Hunter was telling the truth, and also that Hunter “proved she suffered prior domestic abuse at Harris’s hands, and that she genuinely feared for her life and had no way to escape his attack in the minutes before she stabbed him.” Too bad the jury didn’t feel the same way when they convicted her of murder and felonious assault in 2005, for which she was ordered life in prison. She will be released July 15
