The Alabama Supreme Court has set execution dates for death row inmates Tommy Arthur and Carey Dale Grayson.

The court Wednesday ordered that Arthur die on March 29 and set Grayson's execution for April 12. Both men are to die by lethal injection at Holman Prison in Atmore.

The 69-year-old Arthur was sentenced to die for the 1982 murder-for-hire killing of Muscle Shoals businessman Troy Wicker. He is 1 of the longest serving inmates on Alabama's death row. This is the fifth time an execution date has been set for Arthur.

Grayson is on death row for the Feb. 21, 1994 kidnapping and murder of Vicki Lynn Deblieux. Grayson was 1 of 4 men charged with torturing and killing Deblieux and throwing her body off a cliff near Birmingham.
