Court Sets Execution For Oklahoma Death Row Inmate

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma appeals court has set a Dec. 17 execution date for a man sentenced to death for killing a prominent horse trainer from Ringling.

The execution date for 48-year-old Dale Black was scheduled Wednesday by the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals.

Black was convicted of first-degree murder for the 1998 beating and stabbing death of 54-year-old Bill Pogue in a roadside attack.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt requested execution dates for Black and two other death row inmates following rejection of their appeals by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The appeals court last week set a Dec. 10 execution date for 53-year-old Ronald Clinton Lott, who was convicted of the rape and murder of two elderly women. An execution date is still pending for 38-year-old Michael Lee Wilson.
