Atlanta, GA (AP) - State records obtained by The Associated Press
give a glimpse into Troy Davis' final hours before he was executed
for the 1989 murder of an off-duty Savannah police officer.

Guards said in the records that Davis took an hour-long nap as
his 7 p.m. execution came and went. He had vowed to fast through
the day, but as the night dragged on he changed his mind and asked
for food. And he ended a phone conversation with an attorney
moments before guards escorted him to the gurney.

Davis insisted he didn't commit the crime and his case was the
focus of international attention. Prosecutors said they were
certain of Davis' guilt.

Prison officials also provided an audio recording and transcript
of his last words.
