Longtime death row inmate, David Miller, has received his final meal ahead of his scheduled execution Thursday.  

According to the Tennessee Department of Correction, the 61-year-old selected fried chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and coffee. The meal will be served to him Thursday afternoon.  

Miller was moved to a cell beside the execution chamber at a Nashville prison early Tuesday. He will remain under 24-hour observation leading up to his execution.  

Miller, who has been on death row for 36 years, was sentenced to death for the 1981 murder of 23-year-old Lee Standifer in Knoxville.

Last month, Miller chose to be put to death in the electric chair after a lower court ruled against his claim that Tennessee’s lethal injection protocol causes a prolonged, torturous death.
