Execution of Indiana death row inmate set for Friday

Matthew Eric Wrinkles convicted in 1994 deaths of estranged wife, two others

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — An Indiana death row inmate who refused to request clemency is awaiting execution.

Matthew Eric Wrinkles was convicted in the 1994 deaths of his estranged wife and two of her relatives in Evansville. He is scheduled to die by lethal injection early Friday at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City.

No last-ditch appeals are expected. The 49-year-old inmate told his attorneys not to make any such efforts and last month declined to request clemency from Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Wrinkles was convicted of breaking into a home at night while wearing camouflage and face paint and killing his estranged wife and her brother and sister-in-law.
