Brannan Execution Media Advisory - Inmate�s Last Meal

Forsyth —Condemned murderer Andrew Howard Brannan is scheduled for execution by lethal injection at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson. Brannan was sentenced to death for the January 1998 murder of 22-year-old Deputy Kyle Dinkheller in Laurens County.

Media witnesses for the execution are: Kate Brumback, The Associated Press; Randall Savage, WMAZ-TV; Phillip Ramati, The Macon Telegraph; Joseph Ambrose, WGXA; and Payton Towns III, The Courier Herald.

Brannan requested a last meal consisting of three eggs over easy, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, sausage, pecan waffles with strawberries, milk, apple juice, and decaffeinated coffee.

There have been 55 men executed in Georgia since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1973. If executed, Brannan will be the 33rd inmate put to death by lethal injection. There are presently 84 men and one woman on death row in Georgia.

The Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison is located 45 minutes south of Atlanta off Interstate 75. From Atlanta, take exit 201 (Ga. Hwy. 36), turn left over the bridge and go approximately ¼ mile. The entrance to the prison is on the left. Media covering the execution will be allowed into the prison’s media staging area beginning at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
