More than three decades after he was convicted of killing two people near LaBelle, Death Row inmate Cary Michael Lambrix was executed late Thursday at Florida State Prison.
Lambrix, 57, died of lethal injection at 10:10 p.m., according to the Florida Department of Corrections.
Earlier, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court rejected bids by Lambrix for a stay of execution.
Lambrix was the second inmate executed after a 19-month hiatus for the state's death penalty because of legal rulings.
