Ex­e­cu­tion set for Alabama mur­derer

The Daily Courier - - WORLD -

MONT­GOMERY, Ala. — Alabama has set an ex­e­cu­tion date of Feb. 7 for an in­mate sen­tenced to death for the fa­tal stab­bing of a 15year-old girl.

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

Do­minique 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.

Months be­fore his death penalty trial, Ray got a life sen­tence for the 1994 slay­ing of two broth­ers who re­fused to join a gang or­ga­nized by Ow­den and Ray.
