TENNESSEE DEATH ROW INMATE MUST DECIDE TYPE OF EXECUTION TUESDAY AFTERNOON

///

A Tennessee death row inmate faces a deadline Tuesday afternoon on whether he chooses execution by lethal injection or electrocution. David Earl Miller’s execution date is Dec. 6. for the 1981 murder of 23-year-old Lee  Standifer in Knoxville. Lethal injection is Tennessee’s preferred execution method, but inmates whose crimes were committed before 1999 have the option of choosing the electric chair.

A federal judge last week ruled against Miller in a case that challenged both methods of execution. On Monday, Miller’s attorneys asked the court to reconsider.
