AG wants convicted killer's appeal dismissed
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office is urging a Delaware County judge to dismiss the latest appeal of a man sentenced to life in prison for the death of a Missouri banker.
Shannon Wayne Agofsky was convicted in the death of Dan Short in October 1989. Prosecutors say Short was abducted from his northwest Arkansas home and taken to the State Bank of Noel, Mo., where he was forced to open the vault.
Short was then driven into northeast Oklahoma, tied to a weighted chair and dumped alive into Grand Lake near Grove. His body was found five days later.
Agofsky has filed a motion to set aside his murder conviction and life sentence. He is currently on federal death row in Terre Haute, Ind., for stomping another inmate to death.
