Oklahoma inmate scheduled for lethal injection

Oklahoma - An Oklahoma death row inmate is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday.

Jeffrey David Matthews is convicted of killing 77-year-old, Otis Earl Short, in January 1994.

The 38-year-old was convicted of the murder during a robbery in the victim's McClain County home.

Matthews was the victim's great nephew, but he claims he is innocent.

Governor Brad Henry has twice granted a stay of execution to give Matthews' defense attorneys time to review fingerprint evidence involving other possible suspects.
