Despite pleas to the state parole board, the US Supreme Court, and even a clemency request from the Pope himself, Kelly Gissendaner was executed by the state of Georgia early this morning for planning and directing the murder of her husband in 1997. And while neither the Pope nor Gissendander’s lawyers could arrange for a reduced sentence, the convicted murderess did partake of a reduced last meal.
The first time Gissendaner was scheduled for a date with the Grim Reaper back in February, she ordered and received a hearty last meal which included two Whoppers with cheese and all the trimmings, two large orders of French fries, cornbread and buttermilk, a salad with boiled eggs, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, carrots, cheese, and Paul Newman buttermilk dressing, cherry vanilla ice cream, popcorn, and lemonade. For her second date, Gissendaner shied away from her previous blue collar belly buster and opted for a more demure South of the Border supper of Texas fajita nachos, cheese dip with chips, and a diet frosted lemonade—which sounds like a tasty way to say adios before you lie back for that final siesta.
