Scotland native Kenny Richey, convicted in the 1986 arson death of a 2-year-old child, has spent 11 years on death row in Mansfield, Ohio. A month-long Blade investigation finds that the basis for Richey's death sentence -- that he unhooked a smoke alarm -- cannot be proven. But a quirk in Ohio law allows judes to draw conclusions based on circumstantial evidence, even in death penalty cases.
