William Mitchell Executed in Mississippi

         William Mitchell was put to death in Mississippi for the 1995 slaying of a convenience store clerk. He was pronounced dead at 6:20 p.m.

The U.S. Supreme Court earlier Thursday declined to stop Mitchell’s execution.

In an article detailing Mitchell’s last day, details such as his final meals are outlined:

Mitchell was transferred from Unit 29 to Unit 17 at 6 p.m. Tuesday. This morning, at Unit 17, for breakfast at 5:07a.m., Mitchell ate potatoes with beef gravy, 2 biscuits, dry cereal, milk and coffee.

Mitchell was offered lunch today but chose to not eat.

Mitchell also has made several phone calls over the last few days to friends, his attorney and family. He had access to a phone until 5 p.m. today.
