Attorney General Scott Pruitt has asked the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to set an execution date for a death row inmate who was convicted of a fatal 1975 shooting.
Pruitt requested the date within 60 days or at the earliest deemed fit by the court for Michael Selsor, whose final appeal was denied by the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Selsor was sentenced to die in the fatal shooting of 55-year-old Clayton Chandler during a Tulsa convenience store robbery.
His conviction came in 1976, the year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Oklahoma's death penalty was unconstitutional. The Court of Criminal Appeals sentenced him to life without parole, but a federal appeals court overturned that sentence in 1996.
He was convicted and sentenced to death again in 1998.
