The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected the final appeal of death row inmate Kenneth Eugene Hogan, and Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt sought an execution date.

Hogan, 52, was convicted of stabbing Lisa Renee Stanley to death in 1988 in Oklahoma City. Stanley was 21 at the time and a student at Oklahoma City Community College. She and Hogan had been friends.

Hogan's first conviction for murder was overturned in 1999, when a federal appeals court ruled that the jury should have been able to consider first-degree manslaughter as a verdict. His retrial in 2003 resulted in the same verdict and sentence.

If the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals sets a date, Hogan will join three other death row inmates in the state facing imminent execution.

Ronald Clinton Lott, who killed two elderly Oklahoma City women, is set to be executed on Dec. 10; Johnny Dale Black, who killed a prominent horse trainer in Stephens County, is scheduled for Dec. 17; and Michael Lee Wilson, convicted in the killing of a Tulsa convenience store worker, is scheduled for Jan. 9.

Four Oklahoma death row inmates have been executed this year.
