OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson is looking for the relatives of two of the four Tulsans who were killed by condemned killer Corey Duane Hamilton.

Edmondson is asking that an execution date be set for Hamilton and says the family of the victims would be allowed to testify if Hamilton asks for a clemency hearing and could witness the execution.

Hamilton was convicted and sentenced to death for the August 1992 murders of Senaida Lara, Joseph Gooch, Theodore Kindley and Steven Williams.

Edmondson says he's been in contact with the families of Kindley and Williams but can't find relatives of Lara and Gooch. Edmondson spokesman Charlie Price says Lara and Gooch's families may now live in the Dallas area.

The four were each shot in the back of the head during a robbery at Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken in Tulsa.
