The Arizona Supreme Court has set an Oct. 23 as the date for the execution of inmate Robert Jones.

Jones and Scott Nordstrom were convicted in two separate crimes in the Tucson area in 1996.

On May 30, 1996, Jones shot one customer in the head at Moon Smoke Shop. He injured an employee and Scott Nordstrom shot another employee in the head. The pair took money, which they shared with lookout David Nordstrom.

On June 13, 1996, Jones and Scott Nordstrom entered the Firefighters Union Hall in Tucson. Jones shot three customers in the head and took one of the victim's wallet. Nordstrom killed the bartender after he was unable to open the safe. The pair took money from a cash register.

Both cases were solved when David Nordstrom contacted the police.

Scott Nordstrom was also sentenced to death for his role in the crimes.
