ATOKA COUNTY, Okla. -- A convicted killer is days before his execution date.
Jesse James Cummings was convicted of killing his 11-year-old niece, Melissa
Moody in 1996. He is set to die by lethal injection Thursday.

Authorities say Cummings was married to two women at the time, and had so
much control over them that he ordered one of his wives to kill Moody.

The investigation began in September 1991. The body of Melissa's mother,
Cummings's half-sister, Judy Moody Mayo, surfaced in Atoka Lake. Cummings
was out of town when the murder allegedly occurred, but gave the women
instructions to kill Mayo and hide her body.

Two others were missing, including Melissa. Cummings was convicted of
killing Mayo as well, but that conviction was overturned.

Both of Cummings's wives are serving prison time. Juanita Cummings is
serving a life sentence for Mayo's death. Sherry Cummings is serving a
35-year sentence as an accessory to child abuse.
