Death row inmate asks to donate organs

Associated Press • Nov 12, 2013 at 2:48 PM

Lawyers for death row inmate Ronald Phillips said in a letter to the Ohio prisons agency that Phillips would also be willing to donate the organs to other individuals.

The letter obtained Monday by TheĀ Associated Press says Philips wants as many people as possible to benefit from his death.

A message was left with the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction seeking comment.

Phillips, 40, faces execution Wednesday by a never-tried two-drug combination of a sedative and painkiller.

He was sentenced to die for raping and killing his girlfriendā€™s daughter, 3-year-old Sheila Marie Evans, in Akron in 1993.
