OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has scheduled a Jan. 23 execution date for a death row inmate convicted in the stabbing death of an Oklahoma City woman 25 years ago.

The court set the execution date Tuesday for 52-year-old Kenneth Eugene Hogan. Hogan was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to die for the January 1988 stabbing death of Lisa Stanley at Stanley's home in Oklahoma City.

Hogan acknowledged stabbing Stanley but said it was self-defense after Stanley lunged at him with a knife. The victim was stabbed 25 times.

Hogan's first conviction was overturned in 1999 by a federal court that said the jury should have been allowed to consider a verdict of manslaughter. Hogan was re-tried in 2003 and was again convicted and sentenced to death.
