The state says a condemned inmate with multiple health problems has arrived at the Ohio death house a day ahead of his scheduled execution.

Campbell is set to die Wednesday morning for killing a teenager during a Columbus carjacking two decades ago.

The 69-year-old Campbell has a history of smoking and requires four breathing treatments a day.

Campbell has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his execution, saying he's too ill to execute.
