Governor Bill Haslam on Thursday declined the request for clemency for death row inmate David Earl Miller. He said, “After careful consideration of David Earl Miller’s clemency request, I am declining to intervene in this case.”
Miller has been on death row for 36 years. He was sentenced to death for the murder of Lee Standifer, 23, in 1981.
Miller is scheduled to be executed at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
