The state's pardon and parole board has been asked by attorneys representing an Oklahoma death row inmate for clemency.

Representatives for James Coddington, who is scheduled to be executed Aug. 25, officially made their petition Friday.

Coddington would be the state's first execution to take place after the state's protocol went to trial earlier this year.

Last month, U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Friot ruled the lethal-injection protocol as constitutional.

The attorneys cited Coddington's remorse for the crime as well as clemency support from former state department of correction director Justin Jones.

Coddington was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death after the 1997 killing of 73-year-old Albert Hale.
