Tuesday, Attorney General Drew Edmondson asked the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to set execution dates for two men convicted of separate murders in Oklahoma County after the United States Supreme Court today denied their final appeals.
Garry Thomas Allen, 48, was convicted of the Nov. 21, 1986, murder of Lawanna Gail Titsworth, 42. Titsworth was the mother of Allen’s sons, Antonio, 6, and Adrian, 2. Allen was convicted of shooting Titworth as she attempted to pick up her sons at Beaulah’s Day Care Center in Oklahoma City.
George James Miller, Jr., 39, was convicted of the Sept. 17, 1994, murder of Gary Kent Dodd, 25. Dodd was working as the night auditor for Central Plaza Hotel, I-40 and Martin Luther King Dr., when Miller stabbed him repeatedly, beat him with hedge shears and a paint can and poured muriatic acid down his throat.Edmondson asked the court to set both dates 60 days from today or at the earliest date the court deems fit.
