RINGLING, OK (AP)-- The Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board denied clemency for a death row inmate who was convicted of killing a Stephens County horse trainer.

The board voted 4-1 Friday against recommending clemency for Johnny Dale Black, 48.

Defense attorneys had asked the board to commute Black's death sentence to life in prison without parole.

Black was convicted of first-degree murder by a Stephens County jury for the Jan. 4, 1998, stabbing death of 54-year-old horse trainer Bill Pogue of Ringling.

Pogue suffered 10 stab wounds, broken ribs and two punctured lungs in a roadside attack. Black is to be executed on Dec. 17.

Black apologized for the victim's death during his clemency hearing and asked Pogue's family members to forgive him. Members of the victim's family urged the board to deny clemency for Black.
