RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - An execution date will soon be set for a man convicted of killing a family of four in Richmond.

A hearing in Ricky Gray’s case will be held via teleconference with Richmond Circuit Court Judge Beverly Snuckals on Monday.

The Attorney General’s Office has recommended the execution take place Jan. 17 or 18, giving Gov. Terry McAuliffe time to consider any clemency request.

Gray was convicted in the New Year’s Day 2006 stabbing and bludgeoning deaths of Bryan Harvey, Kathryn Harvey and their daughters, 9-year-old Stella and 4-year-old Ruby. Gray was sentenced to death for the girls’ deaths. An accomplice, Ray Dandridge, was sentenced to life.

The U.S. Supreme Court denied a rehearing to Gray last week.
