Execution set for Ala. inmate convicted of killing teen
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.
