The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board has scheduled a special meeting to discuss a possible clemency hearing for death row inmate Garry Thomas Allen.
The board is to meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the state Department of Corrections Administrative Office in Oklahoma City.
Allen was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death for the Nov. 21, 1986, fatal shooting of 42-year-old Lawanna Gail Titsworth, the mother of his children. But Allen's 2005 execution was stayed when prison officials reported he had developed mental problems on death row.
A jury in 2008 rejected Allen's argument that he shouldn't be put to death and decided he was sane enough to be executed.
He is currently scheduled to die by injection on Feb. 16.
