McAlester, Okla. A man convicted of killing two elderly women more than a quarter-century ago has been executed in Oklahoma.
Fifty-three-year-old Ronald Clinton Lott was pronounced dead at 6:06 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester. Lott is the fifth Oklahoma death row inmate to be executed this year.
Lott was convicted in Oklahoma County of two counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of 83-year-old Anna Laura Fowler in September 1986 and 93-year-old Zelma Cutler in January 1987. He was also convicted of raping the women.
Authorities said Lott broke into the women's homes and attacked them. DNA samples taken from the victims were matched to Lott.
