FILE - This Feb. 5, 2018, file photo provided by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections shows Julius Jones. Oklahoma scheduled its first executions Monday, Sept. 20, 2021, since the state put lethal injections on hold six years earlier following a series of mishaps. Included on the list seven executions is Jones, whose case has drawn national attention. The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals scheduled Jones to die on Nov. 18 by lethal injection for the 1999 slaying of Edmond businessman Paul Howell, who was shot in front of his family during a carjacking.

In a story published Sept. 20, 2021, about executions in Oklahoma, The Associated Press erroneously reported the name of the first inmate scheduled for lethal injection in the state since 2015. He is John Marion Grant, not John David Marion.
