 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A man who raped and killed a 3-year-old girl in 1993 wants Ohio to delay his Nov. 14 execution.

Ronald Phillips would be the first death row prisoner in the U.S. to receive a never tried, two-drug lethal injection, and his lawyers say more evidence needs to be gathered.
Phillips is expected to testify this morning at a hearing.
