Condemned murderer Marcus Ray Johnson is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection at 7 p.m. tonight at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson. Johnson was sentenced to death for the 1994 murder of Angela Sizemore in Dougherty County.
Media witnesses for the execution are: Rhonda Cook of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Terry Lewis of the Albany Herald; Kate Brumback of The Associated Press; Cade Fowler of WALB-TV; and Eric Mock of WGXA-TV.
Johnson requested a last meal consisting of a six pack of beer. His request was declined as alcohol is a contraband item, and he will be receiving the institutional tray consisting of baked fish portions, cheese grits, dry mixed beans, cole slaw, cornbread, crisp drop cookies and fruit punch.
