FORSYTH — Ray Jefferson Cromartie has submitted a new request for his last meal.
Cromartie is scheduled to be executed Wednesday, November 13, at 7 p.m. He has requested a last meal of steak, lobster macaroni and cheese, chicken sandwich, chicken caesar salad with ranch dressing, double cheeseburger, fries, red beans, strawberry milkshake, and apple juice.
Convicted in 1997 for the 1994 murder of convenience store clerk Richard Slysz, Cromartie originally scheduled for execution on Wednesday, October 30. The Supreme Court of Georgia granted a stay the morning of the execution but lifted it two days later.
His original last meal request consisted of steak, lobster, macaroni and cheese, cube steak, rice and gravy, steak and cheese sandwich, double cheeseburger, fries, side of ranch dressing, strawberry milkshake and layered cake with white icing.
There have been 73 men and one woman executed in Georgia since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976. If executed, Cromartie will be the 52nd inmate put to death by lethal injection. There are presently 45 men and one woman under death sentence in Georgia.
