Kelly Renee Gissendaner, who was sentenced to death in 1998 for orchestrating the murder of her husband Doug, has asked for a long list of food including corn bread with a side of buttermilk.
She has also requested two Burger King Whoppers with cheese; two large orders of fries; cherry vanilla ice cream; popcorn; a salad with boiled eggs, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, carrots, cheese and Newman’s Own buttermilk dressing; and lemonade, according to[color=#484f54][i] abc News 10[/i].[/color]
Final meal requests are not uncommon for death row inmates.
American terrorist, [color=#484f54]Timothy McVeigh, who detonated a truck-full of explosives in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people in 1995, ordered 2 pints of mint chip ice cream.[/color]
He was executed by lethal injection in 2001.
Gissendaner has asked for corn bread and a side of buttermilk.
Convicted murderer Victor Feguer, who was the last man to be executed in Iowa, requested a single olive with the pip still in it before he was executed in 1963.
However, elaborate last meals have come under the spotlight in the past.
Texas officials banned last meals in 2013 after convicted murderer Lawrence Russell Brewer requested two chicken fried steaks, a triple-meat bacon cheeseburger, fried okra, a pound of barbecue, three fajitas, a meat lover’s pizza, a pint of ice cream and a slab of peanut butter fudge with crushed peanuts.
Brewer reportedly refused to eat any of the food he had requested, leading to the ban.
Texas officials said at the time that death row inmates would get the same food as other inmates.
Gissendaner is scheduled to die by lethal injection Wednesday week, in what will be the state’s first execution of a woman in 70 years.
If the execution goes ahead as planned she will become the 35th Georgia inmate put to death by lethal injection.
The Georgian woman has also asked for a side of popcorn as well.
While her execution date has been set for February 25 at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, a last bid clemency hearing has been scheduled for February 24.
According to court documents, Gissendaner persuaded her then boyfriend Gregory Bruce Owen to kidnap her husband Douglas and kill him.
Gissendaner created the plot to collect on the couple’s life insurance policies, Associated Press reported and Owen testified against her in exchange for a life sentence.
It is not yet known whether her last meal request will be granted.
The last woman executed in Georgia was African American woman Lena Baker, who killed a white man who enslaved her.
The maid, who died in the electric chair in March 1945, was pardoned in 2005 after a jury found she acted in self-defence, broadcaster [color=#484f54]NPR reported.[/color]
