DALLAS – Texas Prisons Are No Longer Permitted The Death Chamber after the US Supreme Court blocked the scheduled execution of a man claiming his religious freedom would be violated if his Buddhist spiritual counselor could not accompany him.

As of now, the Texas Criminal Justice Department only allows a jail security guard to enter the death chamber, a spokesman said Wednesday. The policy change was made in response to the Supreme Court ruling that continued the execution of Patrick Murphy, a member of the "Texas 7" group of escaped prisoners.
