U.S. District Judge William L. Campbell today denied a request to delay death row inmate David Earl Miller's execution while his lawsuit arguing for a firing squad is pending, Knoxnews reports. The ruling suggests the state's next execution could move forward as scheduled on Dec. 6, as long as the state allows phone access for Miller's defense attorney during the execution. Miller is scheduled to die for the 1981 murder of 23-year-old Lee Standifer in Knoxville.
