Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has rejected clemency for a condemned killer who locked a woman in a car trunk and burned her alive.

Strickland on Monday turned down the request for mercy from Daniel Wilson, scheduled to die Wednesday for the 1991 death of Carol Lutz in Elyria.

Wilson's attorney Daniel Doughten says he got the call from Strickland's office Monday morning.

Also Monday, Wilson asked the U.S. Supreme Court to delay his execution while he pursues appeals of his conviction on the grounds the jury heard misinformation about the indictment against him.

Wilson set the car on fire with Lutz inside despite her pleas that she would forget about the incident if he let her go.

    Gee,it is really amazing how fast the wheels of justice work.Only taken 18 years and this guy will finally have to pay the price.His death by lethal injection will be a cake walk compared to agonizing death he dealt out to the victim!!
