Florida Governor Crist Signs 2 Death Warrants

Monday, April 20, 2009

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Gov. Charlie Crist signed two death warrants for men awaiting execution in separate 1983 killings.

Forty-seven-year-old John Richard Marek was scheduled to be put to death May 13 at the Florida State Prison near Starke. He was convicted in the kidnapping, rape and slaying of Adella Marie Simmons.

David Eugene Johnston is condemned in the stabbing and strangulation of 84-year-old Mary Hammond in Orlando. The 51-year-old is scheduled for execution May 29.

Marek was tried with a co-defendant, who was given a life sentence but died of natural causes in prison.

I hope they are making room for Casey Anthony.
