Lawyer: Robert Has Last Meal Before Execution
Eric Robert

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A South Dakota inmate ate a last meal of ice cream ahead of his execution on Monday.

Lawyer Mark Kadi tells The Associated Press Saturday night that 50-year-old Eric Robert requested ice cream for his last meal before he dies. Robert is fasting for the 40 hours prior to the execution for religious purposes, so his last meal was on Saturday. Robert is Christian.

Robert is set to die at 10 p.m. Monday for the killing of prison guard Ronald "RJ" Johnson during a failed escape attempt in April 2011.

Kadi says he was touched when Robert asked him to share his last meal with him. Robert had moose track flavor ice cream while Kadi had turtle track.
