An Oklahoma anti-death penalty group is asking the public to join in a protest and vigil next week outside the governor's mansion in Oklahoma City on the day of the state's next scheduled execution.

The Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty will hold a "Don't Kill For Me" protest on January 9, the day 38-year-old Michael Lee Wilson is scheduled to die by lethal injection at the state Penitentiary in McAlester for the 1995 beating death of Richard Yost, the night manager of a Tulsa convenience store.

The protest will become a silent vigil beginning at 6 p.m., when the execution is to begin.

Wilson will be the third person executed for Yost's death. Co-defendants Darwin Brown and Billy Don Alverson were put to death in 2009 and 2011.
