(Tulsa-AP) -- Oklahoma death row inmate George Kent Wallace has asked to talk to an assistant sheriff from North Carolina where Wallace is accused of killing two boys.

Wallace is scheduled to be executed Thursday at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary. Forsyth County Assistant Sheriff Allen Gentry says he will visit Wallace.

Gentry also visited Wallace on death row in 1996. Gentry says Wallace confessed during that visit to the 1976 murder of Jeffrey Lee Foster and the 1982 murder of Thomas Stewart Reed. Both Foster and Reed were from North Carolina.

Wallace was sentenced to die after pleading guilty to the murders of 15-year-old William Von Eric Domer and 14-year-old Mark McLaughlin. He lured the Arkansas boys into his vehicle by impersonating a police officer, beat them and shot them before dumping their bodies in a pond outside Pocola.
