OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals Thursday set a January 9th execution date for a Tulsa man convicted of killing four people during a restaurant robbery.

Corey Hamilton received four death sentences after he and three others were convicted of shooting four people to death during a robbery of Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken in Tulsa on August 17th, 1992.

The robbers took $2,200 and then lined up the victims in a walk-in refrigerator and shot each in the back of the head.

Senaida Lara, 27; Joseph Gooch, 16; Theodore Kindley, 19; and Steven Williams, 24, all were employees of the restaurant.
