Donations needed at red kettles in Fannin County
Posted: 12/05/2013 - BONHAM,TX---Red kettle donations across Texoma could have a big impact on the Salvation Army in Fannin County.
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A spokesman for Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says Fallin is satisfied justice will be served when the state executes a man for the rape and murder of his girlfriend's mother almost 12 years ago.
Brian Darrell Davis is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester. The 39-year-old Davis will be the third inmate to be executed by Oklahoma this year and the second in as many weeks.
The state's Pardon and Parole Board voted 4-1 to recommend that Fallin commute Davis' death sentence to life in prison.
Fallin rejected the suggestion and- as anti-death penalty activists rallied Monday at the Capitol -a spokesman said the governor reviewed all the facts in the case and is "satisfied that justice is being served."
