A former Northmont High School student is to be executed on July 20, 2022 for the murder of a Warren County man.
The Ohio Supreme Court affirmed the death penalty for Austin Myers, 23, of Clayton, in the death of Justin Back, 18, in January 2014, according to a decision published today.

Myers was sentenced to death for Back’s murder during a robbery at Back’s home outside Waynesville. The sentence came although another Clayton man, Timothy Mosley — like Myers, 19 years old at the time — actually stabbed Back to death.
Back was 18 at the time, a 2013 Waynesville High School graduate about to enter the U.S. Navy.
