Oct. 9 (UPI) — A Tennessee prisoner has requested that he be put to death via electric chair if the state carries out his execution as planned this week.

In an affidavit dated Saturday, Edmund Zagorski, 63, said he believes both electrocution and lethal injection are unconstitutional punishments, but added that he does “not want to be subjected to the torture of the current lethal injection method,” which he unsuccessfully challenged in court.
