Groves re COLUMBUS -(UPI)- The Ohio Supreme court agreed today to hear an appeal of Posteal Laskey .10, from a murder conviction and death sentence imposed in the fatal of a woman stenographer. La key a ttorney Bert Signer, based the appeal on grounds that publicity sur-rounding the "Cincinnati strangler" at the time of Laskey 's arrest created a climate of hostility and made it impossible for him to get a fair trial. LASKEY, A NEGRO night club musician, had been scheduled to be executed in the electric chair July 8 for the Aug. 14. 1966, knife slaying of Barbara Bowman, 31, in Cincinnati. The Ohio Supreme court's acceptance of his appeal automatically stayed the execution date, which had been set by the First Ohio District Court of Apeals in March when it rejected a similar appeal by Laskey. LASKKY WAS ARRESTED Dec. 9, 1966, a few hours after Hie slaying of an 81-year-old woman the sixtli slaying attributed by Cincinnati police to the "Cincinnati strangler." Laskey was not harged with being Ihe strangler. He was tried and convicted in Miss Bow-man's death in April, 1967, in Hamilton county Common Pleas court. No conclusive proof is known to exist that Laskey is the strangler. But there have leen no more of the strangulation murders such as those that panicked Cincinnati before Laskey's arrest. The tax breaks would be in force for 20 years, or until the total equalled improvement costs.
