Oklahoma, prison, escapee, resentenced, death

SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An Oklahoma convicted murderer who
shot to death a Kentucky distillery worker after a 1991 prison
escape and multi-state crime spree has been sentenced to execution
again.
Special Judge Geoffrey Morris on Wednesday set a Jan. 19
execution date for Michael Dale St. Clair, whose case has been
returned for either a new trial or sentencing three times by the
Kentucky Supreme Court since 1998.
A jury had recommended death in October following a weeklong
sentencing rehearing in Bullitt County, where he had been convicted
of killing Frank Brady of Bardstown.
St. Clair also faces a retrial in Hardin County, where he is
charged with kidnapping Brady to steal his truck.
Prosecutors say St. Clair is likely to appeal and the execution
date delayed.
