Man to die for killing Choctaw man


(Oklahoma City-AP) -- An eleven-time convicted felon is going to Oklahoma's death row for killing a Choctaw man.

James Coddington was sentenced to death yesterday for the 1997 beating death of 73-year-old Albert Troy Hale.

Prosecutors say Coddington killed Hale because Hale refused to give him 50-dollars to buy drugs.
