McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma death row inmate scheduled to be executed has had his final meal of three apple-filled Bear Claws pastries and two 16 ounce bottles of water.
Department of Correction spokesman Jerry Massie says the meal for 61-year-old Anthony Rozelle Banks was served during the noon hour Tuesday.
Banks is scheduled for execution later Tuesday at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester for the June 6, 1979, killing of Sun "Kim" Travis. Travis was abducted from a Tulsa apartment complex parking lot, raped and shot in the head. Her body was found in a roadside ditch.
Banks was serving a life prison sentence for the 1978 slaying of a Tulsa convenience store clerk when he was linked to Travis' death by DNA evidence 18 years after she was killed.
