MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey refused a reprieve for an inmate set for execution Thursday night for a quadruple killing that occurred after a dispute over a pickup truck, the prisoner’s lawyer said.

The decision apparently cleared the way for Michael Brandon Samra to be put to death by lethal injection since the defense said it doesn’t plan to file last-minute appeals.

A lawyer for Samra, Steven Sears, said he received the denial from Gov. Ivey’s office about eight hours before execution, set for a state prison in Atmore.

Samra was convicted of capital murder in the killing of two adults and two young girls near Birmingham in 1997. Evidence showed the slayings stemmed from a friend’s argument with his father over a pickup truck.

Samra and a friend, Mark Duke, were convicted of capital murder in the deaths of Duke’s father, the father’s girlfriend and the woman’s two elementary-age daughters in 1997. The two adults were shot and the children had their throats slit.
