(Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-AP) -- An Oklahoma native who is sentenced to death in Pennsylvania says he's ready to die.

A judge scheduled 41-year-old David Paul Hammer for execution on November 15th after telling a judge in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that he wants to drop an appeal of his death sentence.

Hammer is to be put to death by lethal injection for strangling a fellow inmate in Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary.

He's currently on death row in Indiana.
