Condemned prisoner Edmund Zagorski has sent a handwritten note to Governor Bill Haslam pleading for clemency from his death sentence, WKRN reports. Zagorski was convicted in 1984 of the murders a year earlier of two men who were purchasing marijuana from him in Hickman County. His attorney Robert Hutton has requested that the inmate's death penalty be commuted to life without parole. Other attorneys involved in the case are seeking to halt the execution based on lingering questions about the drugs used for lethal injection. Zagorski’s execution is scheduled for Oct. 11.
