Oklahoma AG Seeks Execution Dates For 3 Inmates

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked a state appeals court to schedule execution dates for three death row inmates.

Pruitt filed the requests with the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals on Monday, the same day the inmates' final appeals were turned down by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The inmates are 53-year-old Ronald Clinton Lott, 38-year-old Michael Lee Wilson and 48-year-old Johnny Dale Black.

Lott was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the September 1986 death of 83-year-old Anna Laura Fowler and the January 1987 death of 93-year-old Zelma Cutler.

Wilson is one of four men found guilty of first-degree murder in the February 1995 beating death of 30-year-old Richard Yost.

Black was found guilty of first-degree murder for the January 1998 stabbing death of 54-year-old Bill Pogue.
