Editor's note: Danny Paul Bible was executed Wednesday night and pronounced dead at 6:32 p.m., about 15 minutes after a lethal injection. Read the latest update here.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- A Texas death row inmate who confessed to four slayings and at least nine rapes is waiting to see whether the U.S. Supreme Court will halt his Wednesday night execution amid concerns from his lawyers that his health issues make it likely a lethal injection will cause him unconstitutional pain.

No one disputes Danny Paul Bible's guilt for a Houston woman's slaying nearly 40 years ago that went unsolved for two decades before a jury convicted him and sentenced him to death.

But instead of lethal injection, Bible's lawyers have proposed the 66-year-old be rolled in his wheelchair in front of a firing squad or be administered nitrogen gas to cut off oxygen to his brain until he stops breathing. His deteriorating health, the attorneys argue, has left his veins unsuitable for IVs to be inserted to carry a lethal dose of pentobarbital. :snip: https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrJ61sFqDdbGC8ALh1XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyanNvNWYzBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjQ4NTNfMQRzZWMDc2M-/RV=2/RE=1530402950/RO=10/RU=https%3a%2f%2fwww.cbsnews.com%2fnews%2fdanny-paul-bible-ailing-texas-inmate-wants-execution-by-firing-squad-or-gas%2f/RK=2/RS=d9O8JPPUqpnFSrwrX8yMYATRZWM-
