Ohio man gets death penalty for his mother’s fatal beating

(Strongsville Police)

MEDINA, OH (AP) – A northeast Ohio man who was convicted in the 2013 beating death of his mother has been sentenced to death.

A Medina County judge sentenced 30-year-old James Tench on Monday after he begged her to spare his life.

Tench says he would never kill his mother, and he plans to appeal the sentencing.

He was convicted last month of aggravated murder, kidnapping and related offenses in the death of 55-year-old Mary Tench.

Prosecutors say the Brunswick man fatally beat his mother after she confronted him about using her credit card. Mary Tench was found dead in November 2013 inside her car.

The county coroner says she died from several blunt trauma injuries that fractured her skull.
