Oklahoma man scheduled for execution Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

McALESTER, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma man convicted in the 1998 stabbing death of a prominent Oklahoma horse trainer is scheduled for execution.

Johnny Dale Black is to be put to death Tuesday at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester for the stabbing death of Bill Pogue of Ringling_ who suffered 11 stab wounds, broken ribs and two punctured lungs in a roadside attack.

Black apologized for his actions during a hearing last month before the state Pardon and Parole Board and said he and his brother mistook Pogue and Pogue's son-in-law for someone else they were seeking.

Black also asked forgiveness from Pogue's relatives and his own family members.

Black would be the second inmate put to death by the state in two weeks and the sixth executed in 2013.
