AG Urges Denial for Cop Killer’s Parole

10/29/2019

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost today submitted a letter to the Ohio Parole Board, urging the rejection of a parole request by Anthony Wayne McIntosh, who murdered Morrow Police Officer Jeffrey Phegley in 1987.

“An attack on a police officer is an attack on the rule of law,” Yost said. “In most crimes, there is some way to repair the damage, some way to right the balance and recompense the victim. But not with murder … Because the crime continues, the punishment should continue, too.”
