NORMAN — A state court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in an appeal for a Purcell man sentenced to die for a grisly 2006 child killing.

Oral arguments will be delivered Tuesday before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals in the case of 31-year-old Kevin Underwood. The hearing will be held at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

Underwood was convicted and sentenced to death for the 2006 slaying of 10-year-old Jamie Rose Bolin. He admitted to investigators he lured the girl into his Purcell apartment, suffocated her, sexually assaulted her and then tried to cut off her head with a decorative dagger.

The girl's body was found in a plastic tub in Underwood's closet two days after she disappeared from the apartment she shared with her father upstairs from Underwood.
