Alabama has set an ex­e­cu­tion date for an in­mate sen­tenced to death for the 1995 fa­tal stab­bing of a 15-year-old girl. The Alabama Supreme Court set a Feb. 7 ex­e­cu­tion date for Do­minique Ray.

Tif­fany Harville dis­ap­peared from her Selma home on July 15, 1995. Her de­com­pos­ing body was found in a field a month later.

Ray was con­victed in 1999 af­ter co-de­fen­dant Mar­cus Ow­den tes­ti­fied that Ray cut the girl’s throat af­ter they picked her up from her home and raped her. Ow­den said they also took the girl’s purse which had $6 or $7 in it.

A judge sen­tenced Ray to die af­ter ju­rors voted 11-1 to rec­om­mend that he re­ceive the death penalty.
