State of Ohio v. James D. Worley, Case No. 2018-0757
Fulton County Common Pleas Court
James Worley was convicted of the 2016 murder of Sierah Joughin in Fulton County, and he was sentenced to death. Joughin, 20, was riding her bicycle home from her boyfriend's house in July 2016 when she disappeared. Three days later, her body was found buried in a cornfield.
Because Worley was sentenced to death, he is entitled to an automatic appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
