Convicted Killer of Three Women Scheduled for Florida Execution
STARKE, Fla. (AP) — A man found guilty of murdering three women nearly 30 years ago is scheduled for execution.
Barring a last-minute reprieve from the U.S. Supreme Court, 53-year-old Oscar Ray Bolin will be executed Thursday night in Florida State Prison.
Gov. Rick Scott signed Bolin's death warrant in October. The warrant is for the 1986 slaying of Teri Lynn Matthews. The 26-year-old Matthews was abducted from a post office in Pasco County, just north of Tampa.
Bolin was also sentenced to death for the killing of 17-year-old Stephanie Collins. A jury also gave him the death penalty for killing 25-year-old Natalie Holley, but that verdict was thrown out because of legal errors. Another jury eventually found him guilty of second-degree murder in that case.
Bolin was found guilty 10 times by 10 juries for three different murders.
