(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Supreme Court today denied an application for stay of execution by Oklahoma death-row inmate Charles Adrian Foster.

The application was filed with Justice Stephen G- Breyer, who referred it to the full court. There was no dissent.

Foster is scheduled to be executed shortly after midnight tomorrow morning.

Foster was convicted of killing Muskogee grocery store owner Claude Wiley in 1983.
