(Credit: Oklahoma Department of Corrections, File) OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma appeals court on Thursday upheld the murder conviction of death row inmate Richard Glossip, paving the way for Glossip to be executed on May 18, despite the state attorney general’s concerns about some testimony and evidence.Glossip can still plead his case for clemency to the five-member Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board, which could recommend that the governor spare the prisoner’s life by commuting his sentence to life in prison without parole.Glossip has been scheduled for execution before and three separate times came within hours of being put to death.The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals' ruling said his case "has been thoroughly investigated and reviewed," with Glossip given "unprecedented access" to prosecutors' files."Yet he has not provided this court with sufficient information that would convince this court to overturn the jury's determination that he is guilty of first-degree murder and should be sentenced to death," according to the ruling written by Judge David Lewis.Glossip's attorney, Don Knight, said he will continue to seek a new trial."It is unconscionable for the court to attempt to force the State to move forward with his execution," Knight said.

Parents honor son hit, killed while running across US to thank frontline workers
STILLWATER, Okla. - It was the point in their son’s journey when Mark and Julie Lambert started to feel at ease. They were initially worried and expressed concerns when 32-year-old Grady Lambert told them he was going to run across the country, from Oregon to South Carolina, to thank frontline workers at various hospitals for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic."He said, ‘I’m finishing this race one way or another, Mom,‘" Julie told FOX Television Stations. On August 28, Grady was nearly halfway done with his journey when he was hit and killed by a pickup truck driver in Carson County, Texas, near Amarillo. "The driver told the police that when he came over that crest [of the road], the sun hit his eyes and he did not see Grady," Julie said. Grady’s mother said she knew something was wrong because she always tracked her son’s progress via Life360, a location-sharing app. RELATED: Boy born with 12 fingers writes inspirational children's book: 'It’s okay to be different'On that fateful day, the app told her Grady was traveling 96 miles per hour. After calling authorities in the Amarillo area, she found out her son was sent to Northwest Texas Hospital where he was in a coma. The Lamberts rushed to the hospital.
