He's sentenced to death for the 2001 shooting and killing of Brenda McElyea and Suzette Smith, the manager and desk clerk of a Del City motel where he had applied for a job the day before.

Tuesday's vote marks a change in tune for the Pardon and Parole Board which voted two weeks prior to recommend clemency for death row inmate Bigler Stouffer, citing doubts in Oklahoma's execution procedures.
