(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Convicted killer Norman Richard Cleary is set to be executed February 17th.

The 36-year-old from Tulsa County lost his final appeal last month to the US Supreme Court. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals set his execution date.

Cleary was sentenced to death for killing Wanda Neafus. Neafus was a housekeeper, and she was shot five times in 1991 during an attempted burglary at a home where she worked.
