Monday evening’s execution of, Kelly Renee Gissendaner, was postponed because the chemical that was being used for the lethal injection looked “cloudy.”
Gissendaner was found guilty of the 1997 killing of her husband that she plotted to kill with her boyfriend, Gregory Owen, in Gwinnett County. Owen agreed to a plea deal with Gwinnett authorities and testified against Gissendaner. He will be eligible for parole in eight years.
For her last meal Gissendaner requested: two Burger King Whoppers, two large orders of fries, cornbread, a salad drenched in buttermilk dressing, popcorn and cherry-vanilla ice cream.
Gissendaner would have been the first woman in Georgia in over 70 years to be executed. A new date has not been set for her execution.
