Florida Gov. Signs Another Death Warrant

Gov. Rick Scott has signed another death warrant in Florida, this time for 59-year-old David Gore.

Gore was convicted for 1983 rape and murder of a teenage girl, Lynn Elliott, on the Treasure Coast.

Last month, Scott was asked about the Gore case during an editorial board meeting with Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers. The governor asked for details about the case and if there was anything that was holding up the execution and said he would look into it.

Gov. Bob Martinez signed a death warrant for Gore in 1988, but the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a new sentencing hearing. He was resentenced in 1992.

The execution is scheduled for Thursday, April 12th at 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison in Starke. This marks the fourth death warrant Scott has signed during his term.
