Execution date set for convicted Oklahoma killer
Posted: Jan 23, 2014 2:38 AM Updated: Jan 23, 2014 2:38 AM

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma court has scheduled the execution date for a man convicted in the 1999 shooting death of a 19-year-old Perry woman.

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals on Wednesday noted that Clayton Lockett has exhausted his appeals and scheduled a March 20th execution date in his case.

Lockett was convicted in Noble County of first-degree murder in the death of Stephanie Nieman. He was also convicted of 18 other charges, including rape, kidnapping and robbery.

Nieman's body was found in a shallow grave near Tonkawa.

Board denies clemency for condemned Oklahoma man

 The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board denied a convicted murderer’s request to commute his death sentence to life in prison.

 The board voted 4-1 to deny clemency to Clayton Lockett, who refused to appear at the hearing via the video link that had been arranged. Nice move scumbag!  8)

Lockett, 38, is scheduled to be executed March 20.

 Lockett was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1999 slaying of Stephanie Nieman. He confessed to shooting her with a sawed-off shotgun, and two accomplices are serving life terms - one for burying the recent high school graduate in a shallow grave in Kay County.

“In my 28 years as a prosecutor, I never met or prosecuted anyone more filled with evil, and who thrived on being evil, than Clayton Lockett, including coming face-to-face with Tim McVeigh,” Mark L. Gibson, the retired district attorney who prosecuted the case, said in a letter to the parole board.

 The attorney general’s office says Lockett has never shown remorse for killing Nieman and abducting two of her friends and a 9-month-old baby. On the contrary, it says Lockett has proudly taken credit for his crimes and lamented that “his big mistake was that he should have killed the other … victims as well.”

On the night of the killing, Lockett, a cousin and a friend entered Bobby Bornt’s home in Perry, seeking repayment of a $20 debt. The three men bound Bornt and beat him with a shotgun while his 9-month-old son slept in the next room. Nieman and a friend dropped by to invite Bornt to a party when Locket and the other two men attacked them, as well.

 The two women were bound with duct tape. Nieman’s friend was beaten and raped by two of the men before the victims were loaded into two pickup trucks and driven to a rural dirt road. Lockett admitted in a videotaped confession that he originally intended to kill the three adults because he feared police would learn that he had violated terms of his probation from a previous felony.

 After Nieman said she would tell police, he forced her to kneel while Shawn Mathis, a co-defendant, took about 20 minutes to dig a shallow grave. Lockett shot the girl in the shoulder, pushed her into the grave and shot her again in the chest before ordering Mathis to bury her alive.

“Lockett told police he could hear her pleading, ‘Oh, God. Please. Please’” through the duct tape across her mouth, according to an attorney general’s report on the crime. The three laughed about how tough the woman as the dirt piled up atop her.

 The other two victims reported the attack to police the next morning. Lockett’s cousin led officers to Nieman’s body.

 The 10th U.S. Circuit of Appeals upheld Lockett’s conviction and death sentence. It said Lockett feared Nieman would go to police and knew that she was alive when Mathis began to bury her.

 Prior to the murder, Lockett was a four-time convicted felon. Since his incarceration for the murder, Lockett has been cited for bad behavior several times, including for breaking off a sprinkler head and flooding a common room and for spraying human waste out of a shampoo bottle onto a correctional officer.

 While in prison, Lockett wrote to Nieman’s family to apologize. The attorney general’s office said it was a hollow gesture intended only to save his life. While saying on one hand that he would die “a thousand times over” to compensate her family, Lockett was writing letters to others bragging that “I did shoot that b–-,” the attorney general’s office wrote to the board.

 Lockett on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the Oklahoma Department of Corrections along with fellow death row inmate Charles Warner seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent his execution until more could be revealed about the origin of the execution drugs. A hearing on their request is set for Tuesday.

Oklahoma Judge Won't Take Up Execution Challenge

 OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma County district judge says she's not the right judge to hear a challenge to Oklahoma's execution procedures.

 Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner have sued the Oklahoma Department of Corrections to learn more about the drugs that would be used to execute them. After state lawyers claimed District Court Judge Patricia Parrish didn't have jurisdiction, Parrish said Monday the challenge should go to the state Court of Criminal Appeals, which sets execution dates.

 That court would be the third court to look at the lawsuit. Last week, a federal judge moved the case to Parrish's courtroom.

 In their lawsuit, the inmates say they fear the drugs to be used are impure and could cause them to suffer.

 Lockett's execution date is March 20. Warner's is March 27.

Judge denies stay of execution for inmates questioning lethal injection drug


by Rachel Salyer, Updated on: 06:27pm, March 10, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY – Execution preparations will continue for two convicted murderers currently suing the state over its lethal injection process.

Oklahoma County District Judge Patricia Parrish did not grant a restraining order to halt executions for Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner during a hearing today.

Attorneys for the inmates filed the restraining order in an attempt to keep the two alive while their lawsuit makes its way through the state court system.

Both are scheduled to be put to death later this month.

Lockett and Warner are not appealing their convictions but are part of a joint lawsuit requesting more information on the drug pentobarbital, which is currently used in Oklahoma lethal injections.

Attorneys for the two said they will immediately appeal today’s decision to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Under current state law, no information about the drugs used in a lethal injection is required to be released.

“As a result of this secrecy policy, nothing is known about the pharmacy Oklahoma uses to obtain execution drugs, or the drug it will provide, including who made the drug, how they made it and the source and quality of the raw ingredients,” Madeline Cohen, an Assistant Federal Public Defender, said in an email about the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges the drug is made at an Oklahoma compounding pharmacy which is not strictly regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Lockett is scheduled for execution March 20.  He was convicted in the 1999 slaying of Stephanie Neiman and rape of her friend in Perry, Oklahoma.

Warner was convicted in the 1997 rape and murder of an 11-month-old girl.  His execution is scheduled for March 27.

This appeal on the X drugs hasn't worked in Florida, Missouri, Texas or Florida, but keep on trying ambulance chasers.  It will keep you busy until OK snuffs your boyfriends.  8)

Death row inmates appeal to state Supreme Court


Posted: Mar 11, 2014 8:30 AM CDT
 
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Lawyers for two death row inmates who were denied a stay of execution filed an appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.   :P Crybaby ambulance chasers  :P

Oklahoma County District Judge Patricia Parrish on Monday denied a request to halt the executions of Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner. Parrish ruled that only the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals can issue a stay of execution.

Lockett and Warner are suing the Department of Corrections over a law that prohibits disclosure of the state's execution procedures.

Lockett is scheduled to die March 20 and Warner on March 27. They are not challenging their convictions but are asking for a temporary restraining order to prevent their executions until they know more about the drugs used in executions.

Two death-row inmates seek stay pending appeal of drug secrecy


Posted: Updated: 4:25 am, Wed Mar 12, 2014.   

By GRAHAM LEE BREWER

OKLAHOMA CITY — Lawyers representing two death row inmates who are suing the state over its ability to keep the source of its lethal injection drugs secret on Tuesday asked the state Supreme Court for an emergency stay of execution.
 
The men are not appealing their sentences, but are asking for a delay in their executions until their case is adjudicated. Clayton Derrell Lockett, 38, is scheduled for execution March 20, and Charles Frederick Warner, 46, is scheduled for execution March 27.

Lockett and Warner are challenging the constitutionality of the state law allowing the state Corrections Department to shield its source of pentobarbital, a barbiturate used in Oklahoma's lethal injection process, and whether or not a change allowing the use of pentobarbital was a violation of the Oklahoma Administrative Procedures Act.

On Monday, Oklahoma County District Court Judge Patricia Parrish agreed with an objection filed by the state Attorney General's Office which asserts since the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals set the execution dates and denied previous appeals by the men, the appeals court is the proper venue to hear the case.

Oklahoma: Justices shouldn't decide execution stay try


Posted: Wednesday, March 12, 2014 3:45 pm   

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma's attorney general says the state's highest court isn't the right place for inmates to seek stays of execution as they challenge a "veil of secrecy" around execution procedures.
 
Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner are set to die this month. They have asked the Oklahoma Supreme Court for a stop their executions pending a hearing on whether they're entitled to know more about the drugs that would be used to kill them.

State lawyers said in a response Wednesday that they believe that only the Court of Criminal Appeals can grant a stay, but also say that, if the justices do have jurisdiction, the inmates' lawyers did not adequately illustrate why they would be entitled to one.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court is scheduled to discuss the case Thursday.

Oklahoma Supreme Court to take on controversial lethal injection drug case today


Posted on: 8:41 am, March 13, 2014, by KFOR-TV and A. Edwards

OKLAHOMA CITY – The highest court in the state will consider a request to delay the upcoming executions of two Oklahoma inmates.

Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner, both convicted murderers, sued the State Department of Corrections in February.

The two are challenging a state law that states no one can disclose the drugs used in executions.

They claim the drug could force them to die in a cruel or unusual way.

Lockett and Warner are slated to be injected with controversial execution drug pentobarbitol.

Earlier this week a district judge from Oklahoma County struck down a request to halt the executions for both inmates until they knew more information about the drug.

The case is going to the State Supreme Court today.

Lockett is scheduled to be executed one week from today.

Warner’s execution is a week later.

Oklahoma Supreme Court sends execution stay plea to OCCA


Posted: Thursday, March 13, 2014 3:09 pm

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Supreme Court has forwarded to the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals a request by two death row inmates to stay their executions while they challenge what they call a "veil of secrecy" surrounding state execution procedures.
 
In an order signed by Chief Justice Tom Colbert, the Supreme Court on Thursday also remanded the inmates' lawsuit back to Oklahoma County District Court for a hearing where Judge Patricia Parrish ruled Monday that she would not delay the executions.

The state's highest court took the action in a lawsuit by death row inmates Clayton Lockett and Charles Warner, who are scheduled to be executed this month.

Lockett and Warner are suing the state to determine the origins of the lethal drugs to be used to carry out their death penalties.

Oklahoma Supreme Court declines to issue stay of execution for two death row inmates
 

By Graham Lee Brewer   Published: March 14, 2014 
 
A request to block the impending execution of two Oklahoma inmates has again been shifted from one court to another.

Clayton Derrell Locket, 38, and Charles Frederick Warner, 46, are suing the state, challenging the constitutionality of its ability to keep private the source of its lethal injection drugs. Both men have been asking for a stay of execution until their case is heard. Lockett is scheduled for execution Thursday and Warner is scheduled for execution March 27.

Their request for a stay of execution was first heard in Oklahoma County District Court before moving to federal court and back again, where District Judge Patricia Parrish decided Monday she did not have the jurisdiction to grant the stay.

In that ruling, Parrish agreed with an objection filed by the state asserting that since the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals set the execution dates and denied previous appeals by the men, that court is the proper venue to hear the request. The state Supreme Court also came to the same decision Thursday.

“They’re just playing hot potato with who has the authority to stop the execution,” said Madeline Cohen, one of Warner’s attorneys. :-\

Cohen and other legal defense attorneys for the two inmates said Parrish will be on vacation all of next week and they worry their case will not be heard before the men are executed.  :P
