Florida man receives second stay of execution
A former escort service owner who was scheduled to die by lethal injection at Florida State Prison has received a stay of execution.
Attorney Todd Scher said a Bradford County judge on Tuesday ordered a stay for Marshall Lee Gore.
Gore was set to die on Wednesday. Scher said he filed a motion to halt the execution because he says his client is insane.
This isn't the first judge who has looked at whether Gore is mentally ill.
The 49-year-old was supposed to be executed on June 24, but the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals halted the proceedings less than two hours before he was to have received a lethal injection. A federal appeals court lifted the stay on June 28.
Gore was convicted in 1988 of killing two women.
