Attorneys for a convicted killer who is scheduled for execution are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the proceedings.
Marshall Lee Gore is set to die by lethal injection Tuesday night for the March 1988 slaying of Robyn Novick, a 30-year-old exotic dancer whose nude body was found dumped in rural Miami-Dade County.
On Monday, Gore's lawyers filed an emergency petition with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking for a stay. They argue that Gore should not be executed because he is insane.
This is the fourth time Gore's execution has been scheduled this year. Twice, courts put the execution on hold due to insanity claims and once because of a conflict with one of Attorney General Pam Bondi's political fundraising events.
Gore was also convicted of killing a second woman.
