In Tennessee prison in Nashville, Edmund Zagorski's death sentence was confiscated on Thursday night for a double murder. The 63-year-old man carried out his electric chair in accordance with his wishes.
An electric chair that is only allowed in nine states has not been used in the United States since 2013.
He chose how he would die
Zagorec was sentenced to death in 1984 because he killed two people a year earlier in the sale of drugs. In October, the deadly line after 34 years, the toxic injection had to be carried out, but almost at the last minute asked for an electric chair.
Your Zagorski lawyer said your client was afraid that he would suffer from an electric shock for a longer period of time and for a longer period of time after the injection.
In 1999, convicted in Tennessee, there are two types of enforcement: poison injection or electric shock. However, in Nashville prison, the electrical chair has not been used since 2007, and the penitentiary institutions had time to inspect and prepare.
Death in a chair
One witness reported that before the execution a smile appeared on the convict's face. A moment later, a sponge was put into his mouth and a special helmet was placed on his head. At that moment, he was already agonized.
As CNN writes, his last words are "let's rock" ("rock"). During the execution, the close relatives of the two men killed by Zagorski were present. They did not speak in public.
Zagorski death was 19.26 local time (1.26 in Poland). Edmund Zagorski asked for marinated pork chops and pork tail for the last meal.
Previously, the man appealed against the judgment. The execution was executed a few minutes after the Supreme Court's decision rejecting the application.
