Death row inmate gets pillow to help him breathe during execution

Alva Campbell

The state's prisons system plans to give the pillow to death row inmate Alva Campbell on Wednesday (15 November) for breathing issues he may experience while lying flat, Fox8 Cleveland reported.

The Dispatch reported, citing court records, that Campbell uses a walker, relies on an external colostomy bag and requires four breathing treatments a day.

The state says because of Campbell's breathing problems it will provide a wedge-shaped pillow to lie on as he's put to death.

Campbell, 69, was scheduled to die for killing a teenager during a carjacking two decades ago.

A severely ill death row inmate's execution was called off Wednesday after a prison team in OH spent 25 unsuccessful minutes searching for a vein in which they could start an IV.

According to Fox8, the exam also failed to find suitable veins on either of Campbell's arms to insert an IV.

Alex Rowley resigns as Scottish Labour deputy leader amid abuse allegations
Anas Sarwar and Richard Leonard, both MSPs, are battling it out in the race to succeed Dugdale, who quit suddenly this summer. Scottish Labour's interim and deputy leader Alex Rowley has resigned after a woman alleged he sent her abusive messages .

They argued he was too ill to execute, and also should be spared because of the effects of a brutal childhood.

Prisons department spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said on Monday that Campbell's "medical condition and history are being assessed and considered in order to identify any necessary accommodations or contingencies for his execution". Appeals courts and the Ohio Parole Board disagreed, as did Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who denied clemency for Campbell.

Campbell's last meal, called a special meal in OH, includes pork chops, greens, sweet potato pie, mashed potatoes and gravy, macaroni and cheese and milk.

He has chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder as the result of a decadeslong two-pack-a-day smoking habit, a prisons doctor has said. Campbell earlier lost a bid to be executed by firing squad due to questions about the legal procedure.

Prosecutors say Campbell feigned paralysis ahead of an appearance in the downtown Franklin County Courthouse on aggravated robbery charges. As he was being wheeled in, witnesses say Campbell sprang from his wheelchair, took a gun from a sheriff's deputy, and forced the 18-year-old Dials to drive him around the city for three hours.
