|Inmate to receive special pillow to help him breathe during execution|
COLUMBUS, Oh. — Ohio’s prisons agency will give a condemned inmate a wedge-shaped pillow to help him breathe during his execution this week.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction plans to provide the pillow for death row prisoner Alva Campbell on Wednesday because of breathing issues he could experience while lying flat, according to WJW.
A prison doctor recommended the accommodation after Campbell became agitated while lying on his back during an exam last month.
