A man convicted of killing two children went before a judge in order to drop his death penalty appeals and get an execution date, but he said he wasn't sure, The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
"Your Honor, I'm still wavering," the newspaper quoted Howard Ault, 45, as saying.
Ault told Broward Circuit Judge Marc Gold he hadn't been given his psychiatric medication since Thursday when he arrived at the Broward Jail from state prison. But he said he would still be uncertain even if he had taken them.
The judge said he couldn't continue with the hearing if the man was not decided about dropping his appeals. He dismmissed the motion and gave Ault the option of refiling, the newspaper reported.
Ault has been convicted of raping and murdering an 11-year-old and killing her 7-year-old sister, the newspaper said.
