ASHTABULA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio death row inmate has been convicted of aggravated murder in a 1997 case days after an appeals court ruled he should get a new trial in the 2003 death of a 3-month-old boy.

The Ohio Attorney General's Office says 36-year-old John Drummond Jr. was convicted Wednesday in the fatal shooting of Ronald Hull in Ashtabula. The office says five other men pleaded guilty to kidnapping in that case.

Prosecutors say Drummond faces a minimum of 28 years to life in prison at sentencing Friday.

He was sentenced to death for a baby's slaying in a 2003 Youngstown drive-by shooting. A federal appeals court ruled Monday that Drummond should get a new trial, but the state might appeal that decision.

A message was left Thursday for his public defender.
