    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 Campbellon 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.
    An exam also failed to find veins suitable for inserting an IV on either of Campbell’s arms.

    Department spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says the agency is assessing Campbell’s medical condition and history to identify necessary accommodations.

    Campbell has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his execution, saying he is too ill to execute. He was sentenced to die for killing a teenager during a 1997 carjacking.

    I remember him. I was downtown when he did it. He is a mess, medically (and morally of course). He had to have some sort of necessary procedure delayed b/c they couldn't find a vein. I'm not 100% if it was him, but someone recently requested a firing squad for a similar reason
