SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A convicted serial killer is on death row, again.

On Wednesday morning, Special Judge Geoffrey Morris set a January 19 execution date for Michael St. Clair.

Wednesday's sentencing and most recent verdict are the latest developments in a more than 20 year legal saga. St. Clair was has already been convicted of murder in Oklahoma.

In Kentucky, higher courts reversed the death sentence, twice for retrials or re-sentencing because of overturned cases by the Kentucky Supreme Court.

In October, a Bullitt Circuit Court jury recommended the death sentence in the execution-style killing of Frank Brady in 1991. St. Clair escaped from prison in 1991 and then criss-crossed state lines on a crime spree when Frank Brady was shot to death.

St. Clair's attorneys have already filed an appeal

Brady's widow said after 20 years, she hopes this is the last time he faces sentencing in Bullitt County.

"There will never be closure. When you lose a loved one, there is no closure. You never get over it," Merle Brady said.

St. Clair also faces a retrial in Hardin County.
