The Tennessee Supreme Court has set a new execution date for death row inmate Edmund Zagorski following a brief delay to accommodate his request for the electric chair, The Tennessean reports. Zagorski is now scheduled to die Nov. 1, the court announced today. The date appears to be final — the U.S. Supreme Court already rejected delays based on other remaining legal challenges. A court filing from the state confirmed officials would "honor (Zagorski's) decision to have his execution carried out by electrocution."
