It appears the execution of Marshall Lee Gore, slated for lethal injection on June 24, will proceed as scheduled, according to the latest court rulings.
Gore, who was given two death sentences for the 1988 killings of Susan Roark and Robyn Novick, at one point received a temporary stay after his attorneys argued that he was insane and should not be executed.
Gov. Rick Scott rescinded that stay on Saturday, June 1, after a three-doctor commission examined Gore and determined him mentally competent to stand execution.
Then on Thursday, June 6, the Florida Supreme Court denied Gore’s motion for a stay, saying there was no “substantive reason for granting a stay.”
Currently no other appeals have been filed and Gore’s execution is scheduled to move forward as planned.
