FORSYTH, GA (WTOC) -

Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed at 7 p.m. Sept. 21 by lethal injection at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson. 

Davis was convicted in 1991 of the fatal shooting death of Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail in 1989.

He declined a last meal request and will be offered the institution's meal tray, consisting of grilled cheeseburgers, oven browned potatoes, baked beans, coleslaw, cookies and grape beverage, according to the Georgia Dept. of Corrections. 

If executed, Davis will be the 29th inmate put to death by lethal injection. 

There have been 51 men executed in Georgia since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1973, according to the corrections department.
