CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A judge on Monday spared the life of Douglas Shine Jr., the 21-year-old Heartless Felon who faced death by lethal injection after he was convicted in the 2015 barbershop massacre and conspiracy to execute a witness.
Cuyahoga County Judge Joan Synenberg chose not to follow a jury's November recommendation that Shine be executed, citing a "transient, non-nurturing and violent childhood" that left Shine with undiagnosed mental disorders and the emotional maturity of a 5 year old.
