Ashford Thompson is having a hard time right now. The accused cop killer of Twinsburg, Ohio police officer Joshua Miktarian wept in court as he explained to the judge that he couldn’t get a fair trial.
Describing his life in jail since the 2008 murder, Thompson, 24, explained to the judge “harassment” that he’s had to deal with behind bars, including not receiving mail and having his bed sheets taken away.
“Just execute me. … I’m tired of it. I’m at the end of my rope. What can I do?,” Thompson told the judge.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case.
The appearance Wednesday at the Summit County Court of Common Pleas was intended to be a final opportunity for the defendant’s new attorneys to file any additional motions. Thompson originally pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, but later withdrew his plea. The trial is scheduled to begin on May 24th.
