Hamburger, onion rings and Pepsi – the runner's menu condemned by a child revealed

Convicted child murderer Billy Ray Irick will eat a hamburger and onion rings before being executed on Thursday night.

Irick, who was found guilty of raping and murdering seven-year-old Paula Dyer in 1985, selected the "super luxury combo" for his last meal.

The meal includes a super deluxe burger, onion rings and a Pepsi soda, according to the Tennessee Department of Correction.

Billy Ray Irick, who raped and murdered seven-year-old Paula Dyer in April 1985, selected a burger and onion rings as his last meal before his execution on Thursday.

The name of the restaurant will not be released "because of excessive caution," according to a department spokeswoman.

Inmates on death row are limited to $ 20 for their last meal, according to The Tennessean.

Irick, 59, was transferred to death guard this week, which means he is in an 8-foot by 10-foot cell in full view of the death chamber with strictly regulated visitation rights.

If there is no intervention by the Supreme Court of the United States. UU., Irick will be executed on Thursday and will become the first prisoner executed by the state since 2009.

Irick was established for the first time to be executed on May 4, 1987.

His lawyers have filed a series of appeals over the decades, with allegations of dementia and the unconstitutional use of the electric chair as a backup to lethal injection.

In July, Irick's lawyer requested that the Tennessee Supreme Court delay his execution once again in the midst of a challenge to the state's lethal injection protocol.

For the first time, Tennessee plans to use midazolam as a sedative, the muscle relaxant vecuronium bromide and then potassium chloride to stop the heart.

The question is whether midazolam is effective in leaving someone unconscious and unable to feel pain for the other two drugs.

But the Tennessee Supreme Court justices ruled that Irick's attorney had not demonstrated a substantially less painful means of carrying out the execution or that the drugs the state plans to use would cause the prisoner to be tortured to death.

Federal public defender Kelley Henry asked the United States Supreme Court to delay his execution.

The Supreme Court, which had not issued its decision on Thursday morning, seldom keeps the executions.

Henry had asked Governor Bill Haslam to issue a temporary reprieve while studying more drugs. But the governor quickly dismissed it, saying he would not intervene.

"My role is not to be the 13th jury or judge or impose my personal views, but to carefully review the judicial process to make sure it is complete and fair," said Henry.

"Due to the exhaustive judicial review of all the evidence and arguments in each stage of this case, the pardon is not appropriate."

During the last trial, Henry cited witnesses who described some inmates who could still move, shed tears, gasp and swallow "like a fish out of water" while being executed.

"Today's decision means that Irick faces a scheduled execution date before the courts have had the opportunity to carefully consider the challenge to the new lethal injection protocol," Henry said in a statement Monday.

In a dissenting opinion, Judge Sharon Lee added that "she will not join the rush to execute Irick and instead will grant him a stay to prevent his life from ending before his appeal can be adjudicated."

I was seven years old, raped, sodomized and strangled to death. I'm sorry, I do not feel anything for your pain. Nothing at all. God, forgive me, but I do not, "Jeffers said.

State lawyers have said that the US Supreme Court has confirmed the use of midazolam in a series of three drugs.

Paula's mother, Kathy Jeffers, said she has no sympathy for Irick.

"What he did to her is the reason why he is where he is," he told WBIR-TV.
