The state Board of Pardons and Paroles will meet with representatives of condemned inmate Andrew Howard Brannan at 9 a.m. Monday to consider a clemency request, according to a news release.
Brannan, who was convicted of malice murder on Jan. 28, 2000, for the January 1998 murder of Laurens County deputy Kyle Dinkheller, is scheduled to die Tuesday at 7 p.m. by lethal injection at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson.
Brannan’s latest appeal was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court in June.
In Georgia, the parole board has the sole constitutional authority to commute or reduce a death sentence to life without parole. The board will only consider the appeal after an inmate has exhausted all appeals and other judicial avenues.
