Arkansas Death Row Inmate Wants Brain Examined If Executed

An Arkansas death row inmate scheduled to be executed next week wants his head to be removed after his death and his brain to be examined by a doctor, his attorneys said.
Jack Greene's last will and testament includes a request that his head be "surgically removed from my body and transported out of state to an independent medical examiner, such as Dr. Jan Garavaglia," a former medical examiner in Florida who had a reality television show.
Garavaglia, reached by phone Friday, declined to comment on the request.
Greene, 62, is scheduled to be executed on Thursday. 
He was sentenced to death for the 1991 murder of retired pastor Sidney Burnett — who had accused him of arson — days after he killed his own brother.  More
