The McAlester News-Capital reports, "Execution dates set — again," by Glenn Puit.
A fourth death row inmate has a scheduled execution date at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester.
A court set Benjamin Robert Cole Jr.’s execution date for March 5, 2015, in the 2002 slaying of Cole’s 9-month daughter, Brianna, in Claremore. Cole killed the baby because her crying interupted his video game playing.
"As Cole has exhausted his appeals and no stay of execution is in place, this court is required to set an execution date," four judges wrote in an opinion issued by the Court of Criminal Appeals of the state of Oklahoma.
The court on Friday also rescheduled execution dates for three other death row prisoners.
