Death row inmate Stephen Michael West has been moved into a cell next to the execution chamber, where he is scheduled to die by lethal injection Thursday night, the Tennessean reports. West is scheduled to die for the 1986 murders of a woman and her 15-year-old daughter in their Union County home. West has had multiple execution dates that were delayed during his 32 years on death row. West’s legal team sent Gov. Bill Lee a clemency request that argued severe abuse during his childhood doomed his path and should justify mercy; however, Lee announced today he would not stop the proceedings.
