Tomorrow the Ohio Parole Board is expected to recommend whether Kevin Keith will live or die. Advocates...including death penalty proponents from around the country...believe the Stark County native may not have killed 2women and a little girl 16 years ago.

WKSU's Kevin Niedermier reports that Governor Ted Strickland...who will ultimately decide if Keith gets clemency...also has concerns.
