A monument listing the Ten Commandments was removed late Monday night from the grounds of the Oklahoma state capitol.
"After several lawsuits, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled 7-2 back on June 30 that the monument was religious in nature and having it on capitol grounds violated the Oklahoma Constitution," a KOKI reporter said.
A judge then ordered that the monument, which is 6 feet tall, be removed from capitol grounds by Oct. 12.
