Tennessee governor won't intervene in execution: Miller to be executed tonight at 7:00

quote:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Latest on an execution in Tennessee (all times local):

12:40 p.m.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam won't intervene in what would be the state's second execution by electric chair in as many months.

Haslam said in a one-sentence statement Thursday that he's declining to intervene in 61-year-old David Earl Miller's planned execution Thursday evening after "careful consideration" of the death row inmate's clemency request.

Miller chose the electric chair as allowed by authorities. The last inmate to choose the chair, Edmund Zagorksi, was executed Nov. 1. Both had unsuccessfully argued in court that Tennessee's lethal injection method causes a prolonged and torturous death.

Miller was convicted of the 1981 killing of a 23-year-old mentally handicapped woman, Lee Standifer, in Knoxville. Miller has spent 36 years on death row, the longest of any Tennessee inmate.

11:15 p.m. Wednesday

A Tennessee inmate is scheduled Thursday evening to become the second person to die in the state's electric chair in as many months.

The execution plan comes nearly two decades after Tennessee adopted lethal injection. But 61-year-old David Earl Miller chose the electric chair as allowed by authorities. The last inmate to choose the chair, Edmund Zagorksi, was executed Nov. 1.

Both had unsuccessfully argued in court that Tennessee's lethal injection method causes a prolonged and torturous death.

Miller was convicted of the 1981 killing of a 23-year-old mentally handicapped woman, Lee Standifer, in Knoxville. Miller has spent 36 years on death row, the longest of any Tennessee inmate.

The title of your thread makes it seem like the TN governor is the one getting executed.

That's about 25 years, 11 months and 29 days too long.

At any rate, light him up. Good riddance.

Tell that convict you're going to give him the lethal injection while sitting in the electric chair. A minute or so after the lethal injection starts the torturous burning sensation, you'll flip the switch to activate the electric chair.

Seems like Earl is a common name for folks on death row.

Stick a fricking express lane in.

He has sued the state of Tennessee saying he wants to die by firing squad. It was denied
