Man Who Killed Ex-Wife, Daughter Scheduled to Die in October

A man convicted of killing his daughter, his ex-wife, his former mother-in-law and his former sister-in-law is scheduled to die Oct. 29.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed a new death warrant Tuesday for 59-year-old Jerry Correll.

Authorities say Correll went to the Orlando home of his former mother-in-law, Mary Lou Hines, in June 1985. He fatally stabbed Hines, his ex-wife Susan Correll, her sister Marybeth Jones and the former couple's 5-year-old daughter Tuesday Correll.

Bloody finger prints and palm prints, along with other physical evidence, linked Jerry Correll to the crime scene.

Correll was previously scheduled to die early this year, but the Florida Supreme Court halted his execution after the U.S. Supreme Court decided to review the use of a lethal injection sedative. The drug was cleared for use in June, and the stay of execution was lifted Friday.
