Killer of Florida Corrections Officer Scheduled for Execution

January 06, 2014  | 

A man convicted of abducting and killing a Miami couple and later stabbing a prison guard to death is set to be executed after nearly four decades on Florida's death row, the Associated Press reports.

Askari Abdullah Muhammad, previously known as Thomas Knight, is scheduled to die by lethal injection Tuesday at Florida State Prison in Starke barring a last-minute, successful appeal.

Gov. Rick Scott signed the death warrant after the Florida Supreme Court in December rejected Muhammad's challenge to chemicals used in the state's execution procedure.

Good effin' riddance.

Four decades? Let not rush into anything. If the POS committed the crime at 20 years old and the State executes him 40 years later. He pretty much had a full life.

Hey Boston, I've got two on the Florida Death Row. One has been there since '93. All the appeals are done, and Jeb Bush signed the death warrant years ago. There he sits!!!!

C'mon Florida get with the program! 4 DECADES? That's almost as old as I am. I'm glad I live in TEXAS! As Twisted Sister would say "You Gonna Burn in Hell!"

You're right on Boston. The ACLU always talks about "cruel and inhumane punishment". How about making a guy sit on death row for 40 years... enough time to forget why he was in there to begin with. It's like treating the flu, six months after you've gotten over it. The appeal process is a joke. If the ACLU is hell bent on saving these pukes, who we shouldn't forget a jury has already found guilty, give'm a year to do it in and then "lights out" for the convicted!!
