An Oklahoma death row inmate convicted of the rape and murder of his girlfriend's mother is to be executed June 25.

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals set the date Thursday for Brian Darrell Davis. The 38-year-old Davis was convicted of rape and first-degree murder in the November 2001 death of 52-year-old Jody Sanford of Ponca City.

The victim's daughter -- Stacey Sanford -- discovered her mother dead in the Ponca City apartment she shared with Davis. Prosecutors said Jody Sanford had six stab wounds, a broken jaw and marks around her neck. DNA evidence showed she had also been raped.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt sought the execution date last month after Davis' final appeal was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court.
