ATLANTA (AP) -- Carlton Gary, known as the "Columbus Stocking
Strangler," has declined a special last meal before his execution.

The Georgia Department Corrections says in a statement that Gary
will be served the same meal as other inmates before his execution:
a grilled cheeseburger, oven-browned potatoes, baked beans,
coleslaw, cookies and a grape drink.

Gary has a hearing set for Monday before the state Board of
Pardons and Paroles. Unless the board changes his sentence to life
without parole, life with the possibility of parole or grants a stay of execution, Gary is set to be executed Wednesday at 7 p.m.
at the state prison at Jackson.

Gary was convicted in three of seven "stocking strangler" slayings in Columbus in 1986. The victims were strangled with their own stockings.
