Tulsa man's death sentence upheld

Updated:

(Tulsa-AP) -- The death sentence of a Tulsa man convicted of murdering his wife and their two daughters has been upheld.

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals upheld Ronald Dunaway Fluke's three death sentences. He hasn't requested an appellate review of his case. If he doesn't change his mind and seek further court action, Fluke will be executed in 2001.

Against the advice of his attorneys, Fluke pleaded guilty in 1998 to murdering his wife, Ginger, and their daughters, 13-year-old Susanne and eleven-year-old Kathryn.

Police say Fluke walked into a station in 1997 and confessed to killing all three victims.

Fluke was sentenced in October of 1998 and said he didn't want an appeal. The appeals court automatically reviews any death penalty. Earlier this year, Fluke was found to be competent to waive his appeals.
