COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the death sentences for two condemned killers in cases out of Toledo and suburban Cleveland.

The execution of either offender is far in the future, because both have federal appeals to pursue and Ohio also currently lacks lethal injections drugs used for putting inmates to death.

In the Maple Heights case in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County, the court ruled 5-2 Wednesday to uphold the death sentence for inmate Denny Obermiller. He was convicted of raping and killing his grandmother, Candace Schneider, and killing her husband, Donald Schneider, in 2010.

In the Toledo case, the court ruled 6-1 to uphold the death sentence for inmate Anthony Belton for fatally shooting gas station clerk Matthew Dugan during a 2008 robbery.
