OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A March execution date is set for a man convicted of killing a Bixby woman in 1999.
The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and the attorney general's office said Wednesday that 42-year-old Steven Ray Thacker is to be put to death March 12 for the death of Laci Dawn Hill.
Prosecutors say Thacker wen to Hill's home after seeing an ad she placed to sell a pool table. Prosecutors say he kidnapped and raped Hill before strangling her -- then stabbing her to death.
Thacker has also been convicted and sentenced to life in prison for killing a Missouri man after going to that state following Hill's death and he faces a death penalty in Tennessee where authorities say he killed a tow truck driver after traveling there from Missouri.
