COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court has rejected a request from a condemned inmate who survived a botched execution to leave death row.

Attorneys for Romell Broom argued that no attempt to execute Broom could be done without violating his constitutional rights prohibiting double jeopardy.

The court ruled without comment Thursday to deny the request by Broom, who was sentenced to die for raping and killing a 14-year-old girl in 1984.

A similar argument by Broom is pending in federal court.

The state stopped Broom's execution in September 2009 after failing to find a usable vein.

In separate action Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled there's no provision in Ohio law to allow a constitutional challenge of lethal injection.
