OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt denied clemency to death row inmate Bigler Stouffer on Friday.

The state's Pardon and Parole Board recommended clemency for Stouffer last month amid concerns over the lethal injection process.

Stouffer is sentenced to death for the 1985 murder of Putnam City teacher Linda Reaves and the shooting of Doug Ivens.

"After reviewing materials presented by all sides of the case, Governor Kevin Stitt has denied the Pardon and Parole Board’s clemency recommendation for Bigler Jobe Stouffer II," Stitt's office said in a statement Friday afternoon.

Stouffer is scheduled to be executed on Dec. 9 at 10 a.m.
