Georgia Inmate Denied Six-Pack of Beer as Last Meal

A Georgia death-row inmate was denied a six-pack of beer as his last meal, prison officials said.

"His request was declined as alcohol is a contraband item," the Georgia Department of Corrections said in a statement.

Marcus Ray Johnson will be given the standard meal of baked fish, cheese grits, beans, coleslaw and cookies on Thursday, when he's scheduled to be executed.

Johnson, 50, was sentenced to death for the stabbing murder of a woman he picked up at a bar in 1994.
