A group of clergy leaders and civil libertarians are making a last-minute plea to Gov. Mary Fallin to halt the scheduled execution of an Oklahoma City man for killing a baby in 1997.

Holding signs that read: "Don't Kill for Me," members of the American Civil Liberties Union, the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and NAACP met at the state Capitol and called on the governor to stop the execution of Charles Warner.

Warner is scheduled to die at 6 p.m. at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester.
