TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A man who has been convicted 10 times for three separate slayings is scheduled to die for one of them.

Unless an appeals court or the U.S. Supreme Court steps in, 53-year-old Oscar Ray Bolin will be executed Thursday evening for the 1986 slaying of Teri Lynn Matthews.

A Florida district court denied a stay of Bolin’s execution, saying the death-row inmate had failed to establish evidence that would have exonerated him.

His attorney, Bjorn Brunvand, says he’s filed another motion with the district court and an appeals court. The appeals court denied the motion. If all appeals are denied, Brunvand said he’ll appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
