Oklahoma scheduled to execute death row inmate Bigler Stouffer on Dec. 9

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — The state of Oklahoma is scheduled to put Oklahoma death row inmate Bigler Stouffer to death on Dec. 9.

Stouffer was convicted of murdering a Putnam City teacher in 1985.

The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board on Wednesday recommended clemency for Stouffer. They recommended clemency not because they think he’s innocent, but because of concerns over the drugs used in the state’s executions.

Board members specifically questioned whether they should vote on these cases at all when those drugs are set to go into litigation in February.

Gov. Kevin Stitt will now decide whether to grant Stouffer clemency.
