People in southwestern Oklahoma are preparing to mark an anniversary they would just as soon forget.

Tuesday marks the 20th anniversary of the robbery and fatal shootings at the Geronimo bank. And the mayor there says the tragedy has not been forgotten.

Four people were killed and three others wounded during the failed robbery at the First Bank of Chattanooga's branch. Most of the victims had been stabbed or shot to death.

Two men were convicted in the killings. Jay Wesley Neill was executed two years ago. Robert Grady Johnson is serving a life sentence without parole.
