Okla. AG seeks execution date for convicted killer
May 21, 2013 01:40 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Attorney General Scott Pruitt is asking for an execution date for a man convicted in the 1979 slaying of a woman in Tulsa.
Pruitt on Monday said in an appeals court filing that Anthony Rozelle Banks had exhausted his appeals. The U.S. Supreme Court earlier in the day turned away a request by Banks for a hearing.
The 60-year-old Banks wasn't charged until 1997 when he and a co-defendant were linked by DNA evidence to the killing of 24-year-old Sun "Kim" Travis.
Travis was kidnapped from a parking lot in Tulsa, raped and shot in the head.
Pruitt asked the Court of Criminal Appeals to set an execution date within 60 days or at the earliest date it deems fit.
