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.
