Execution date set for Stocking Strangler

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA  - Carlton Gary, known as the "Columbus Stocking Strangler," is scheduled to

be executed Dec. 16 at 7 p.m.

The 59-year-old Gary was arrested at an Albany hotel in 1984 and later convicted of three of Columbus' seven stocking strangulations.

All the victims were strangled with their own stockings.

He will die by lethal injection at the state prison in Jackson.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal by Gary this week.
