MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) - An execution date has been set for a Midland County convicted murderer.

Clinton Young will be executed on Oct. 26, 2017 after 6 p.m.

Young was convicted for the capital murders of 41-year-old Doyle Douglas and 52-year-old Samuel Petrey and stealing their cars.  Young, reportedly, dumped one of the bodies in a Midland County oil field.

His 2001 arrest stems from a high speed chase with Midland authorities that ended in gun fire.

Young was sentenced back in April of 2003.
