NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Ten­nessee in­mate be­came the sec­ond per­son to die in the state’s elec­tric chair in just over a month Thurs­day, nearly two decades af­ter Ten­nessee adopted lethal in­jec­tion as its pre­ferred method of ex­e­cu­tion.

David Earl Miller, 61, was pro­nounced dead at 7:25 p.m.

Miller was con­victed of killing 23-year-old Lee Stan­difer in 1981 in Knoxville and had been on death row for 36 years, the long­est of any in­mate in Ten­nessee.
