Court refuses to block execution in Ohio

The Supreme Court has refused to block the imminent execution of a convicted killer of two people in Ohio, despite his lawyers' claims that he has dementia.

Daniel Lee Bedford, 63, is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday morning. He was convicted in the 1984 shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend.

The justices did not comment in turning down his appeal.
