The state department of corrections has provided a plan to a federal judge on how to keep Death Row at Angola from exceeding 88-degrees in the summer time.
US District Judge Brian Jackson ordered that state corrections officials provide him with a plan on Monday and in that court filing, prison officials proposed an air-conditioning system, cold showers and chests filled with ice to keep the death row inmates cool.
Currently, windows and fans are used as ventilation inside death row.
Judge Jackson ruled in December that the state must come up with a cooling plan. The corrections department is appealing that ruling, so it's unknown when the state will install the air conditioners.
