Firing squad: an inmate last wish

7 month ago

Four Tennessee death row inmates lawyers sent a request to the federal judge to permit to choose a firing squad instead of lethal injection or electric chair.

One of the inmates David Miller who is sentenced to death for murdering Lee Standfier in 1981 IN Knoxville demands the court to halt his execution which is scheduled in December 6 until the hearing of his case.

Miller should choose the way of his execution 30 days earlier but the lawsuit he has filed stops that protocol.

The lawsuit was filed after another inmate Edmund Zagorski was granted execution by electric chair after his attorney filed multiple challenges to his execution.

Miller is still waiting for the answer to his request while the federal court still in confusion between following Tennessee traditional ways of execution or grating the last wish of an inmate.
