Ohio Set to Execute Man Who Stabbed Woman 138 Times

An Ohio man who stabbed a woman 138 times and cut off her hands is set to be put to death
on Tuesday in what would be the third execution in the state since a six-month moratorium imposed by a judge in 2011.

Brett Xavier Hartman, 38, was convicted of the murder 15 years ago of Winda Snipes in Akron, Ohio.

Hartman met Snipes, 46, at a bar in Akron and admitted he engaged in sexual intercourse on several occasions before she was found murdered in her apartment in Sept. 9, 1997.
