MANSFIELD

From birth to death, Jason Brewer was a victim. His life is now scattered in boxes. The 27-year-old died at the hands of his cellmate Christopher Newton in November 2001.

And now the trail of his life, from child abuse, troubled teenage years and then to death, are stowed away in storage facilities around Ohio.

The Lucas County native shared a cell in a section designated for protective custody with Newton, now 37, for nearly a month before he was beaten, strangled and stomped to death by Newton, who is being executed this morning.
