Oklahoma Weighing Options In Death-Row Case

TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office says it's weighing its options after a federal appeals court said the state didn't have jurisdiction over a death-row case in which a man pleaded guilty to killing three people in Indian Country.

Agency spokeswoman Diane Clay says the state has about two weeks to petition the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for a rehearing. That Denver-based court overturned the death sentences for David Magnan last week.

Clay says the state has three months to take the matter directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The state could also decide to take no action, instead leaving it up to federal prosecutors to file the case against Magnan.

Magnan remains in prison pending the outcome.
