David Miller chooses electric chair for execution

(WVLT) -- Tennessee death row inmate David Miller has chosen to be executed via the electric chair, according to CBS affiliate WTVF.

Miller's decision came down with a filing in a Nashville federal district court on Monday. Miller chose electrocution over lethal injection, and is set to be executed next Thursday.

In the filing, attorneys for the state say that, “Miller had presented a signed document to officials at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution on November 23, 2018, which states, ‘I waive lethal injection and wish to be electrocution [sic].’”

Miller is set to die for the 1981 murder of 23-year-old Lee Standifer.
