Oklahoma City, Okla. - An Oklahoma death row inmate waives his right to seek clemency.
Anthony Banks is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 10 for the death of Sun Travis 34 years ago. Travis was found dead back in 1979.
Banks was charged with first-degree murder in 1997 after his DNA was found on the victim's body.
He has a right to ask the Pardon and Parole Board to recommend his sentence to be changed to life in prison. This is why most death row cases can take years before the inmate is executed.
Banks gave up that right and will now be executed.
