A July 29th execution date has been set for Harold Loyd McElmurry III. McElmurry becomes the fifth Oklahoma death row inmate to have a July execution date.

McElmurry was convicted of the 1999 murders of 75-year-old Rosa Pendley and 80-year-old Robert Pendley.

McElmurry stabbed his victims with scissors and hit them with a piece of pipe and a garden hoe.

McElmurry's direct appeal was denied December 2nd, 2002, and a rehearing was denied in February.
