The final meal request of John Blackwelder, Florida, May 26, 2004.

Blackwelder had a pizza with cheese, onions, green peppers, ground beef and mushrooms; a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, cheese and ranch dressing with a coke.

Mr. Blackwelder then received a 24-hour stay from the governor.

The stay was lifted and he was not granted a second last meal.

He dined on regular prison fare of sloppy joes, french fries and corn.

A complete summary will follow shortly.
