TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is asking the state Supreme Court to let the state execute a man convicted of an Orlando quadruple murder.
Bondi asked the court Monday to lift the stay on the execution of Jerry Correll now that the U.S Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a sedative that is used in lethal injections in Florida.
She also said in a statement the U.S. Supreme Court ruling should allow the state to move forward with future executions.
Correll was convicted of the 1985 killing of his former mother-in-law, his ex-wife and her sister, and the former couple’s 5-year-old daughter.
The three women were each stabbed at least 14 times, and the girl was stabbed at least 10.
Correll’s execution was halted back in February.
