COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Prosecutors are criticizing final proposals in a report about Ohio’s capital punishment law, calling them anti-death penalty.

A dissenting report says the committee that spent more than two years studying the state’s death penalty law did not follow a mandate that put abolition of the law off the table.

The 49-page report released Tuesday calls the recommendations biased in favor of defense attorneys, one-sided and likely to create endless delays.

Supporters of the committee’s work have said the 56 recommendations improve the law while making sure only the worst of the worst criminals face capital punishment.

Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor convened the committee in 2011 to produce a fair, impartial and balanced analysis of Ohio’s three-decades-old death penalty law.
