Execution Date Set for 1995 Murderer

Victim was 15 year old Selma girl...



MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama has set an execution date for an inmate sentenced to death for the 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 in 1995. Her body was found in a field a month later.

Ray was convicted in 1999 after co-defendant Marcus Owden testified that Ray stabbed the girl after they picked her up from her home and raped her.

Months before his death penalty trial, Ray got a life sentence for the 1994 slaying of two brothers, ages 13 and 18.

Another man had been charged in Harville’s slaying, but those charges were dropped when Owden confessed to a role in all three killings.
