The U-S Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals today denied Strickler's petition for a stay of execution.
His attorneys claim another man, Ronald Lee Henderson, was the real killer of Roanoke resident Leann Whitlock.
They hope new evidence that a key prosecution witness allegedly lied during Strickler's 1990 trial will earn him a new hearing.
Strickler will make a final appeal to the U-S Supreme Court late today.

The spaceship spent the next 38 years sitting on the ocean floor.
A salvage mission funded by the Discovery Channel used a giant crane to reel in the Liberty Bell early this morning.

A drug therapy used to suppress levels of the AIDS virus is NOT working nearly as well in patients as it did in clinical trials.
A new study found that 37 percent of the patients who got the so-called "drug cocktail" had undetectable H-I-V levels within a year.
Clinical trials produced numbers about twice that figure.
Researchers believe the difference could stem from patients who did NOT Follow the program closely.
The cocktail therapy is difficult. It requires patients to take lots of pillows on a complicated schedule.
