A man convicted of murder more than 10 years ago now has a date with death.
Ralph Menzies is scheduled to die by firing squad on November 10th.
He was convicted of murdering 26 year old Maurine Hunsaker in 1988.
Since that time Menzies has been fighting the conviction -- exhausting every appeal possible.
But now that Menzies' execution date has been set -- Hunsakers children say they can finally have closure.
Matt Hunsaker/Victim's Son "I FIRMLY FEEL THAT THE FINAL CHAPTER IS WHEN I WATCH HIM BE EXECUTED. THEY'RE DOING IT IN A HUMANE WAY WITH HIM, AS OPPOSED TO THE INHUMANE WAY HE DID IT TO MY MOTHER. "
Menzies still may appeal his sentence in federal court.
