Terrell Execution Media Advisory - Last Meal​

FORSYTH, GA – Condemned murderer Bryan Keith Terrell is scheduled for execution by lethal injection at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 8, 2015, at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson. Terrell was sentenced to death for the 1992 murder of John Watson in Newton County.

Media witnesses for the execution are: Rhonda Cook, Atlanta Journal Constitution; Kate Brumback, Associated Press; Elly Yu, WABE; Aimee Jones, Newton County Citizen.

Terrell declined to request a last meal. He will be receiving the institutional tray consisting of  chicken and rice, rutabagas, seasoned turnip greens, dry white beans, cornbread, bread pudding and fruit punch.

There have been 58 men and one woman executed in Georgia since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1973. If executed, Terrell will be the 37th inmate put to death by lethal injection. There are presently 77 men 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.
