MIAMI (AP) - Convicted killer Marshall Lee Gore is set to be executed Tuesday, the fourth time this year his execution date has been scheduled.
The 49-year-old Gore is set to die by injection for the March 1988 killing of Robyn Novick, a 30-year-old exotic dancer whose nude body was found in rural Miami-Dade County. Gore was also sentenced to die for the murder of another woman a few months earlier.
Gore was initially sentenced to die June 24 but his execution was delayed by legal maneuvering over insanity claims. The execution was then set for July, delayed again, and then for Sept. 10. Gov. Rick Scott pushed it to Oct. 1 at the request of Attorney General Pam Bondi, who had a political fundraiser scheduled.
Bondi has since apologized for that request.
