McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - A man convicted of brutally killing two elderly women more than a quarter-century ago is set to be executed in Oklahoma.
Fifty-three-year-old Ronald Clinton Lott is scheduled to be executed Tuesday by lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester. Lott is the fifth Oklahoma death row inmate to be executed this year.
Lott was convicted in Oklahoma County of two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of 83-year-old Anna Laura Fowler in September 1986 and 93-year-old Zelma Cutler in January 1987. He was also convicted of raping the women.
Authorities said Lott broke into the women's homes and brutally attacked them, causing broken bones and bruises. DNA samples taken from the victims were matched to Lott.
