Florida mass murderer to be executed
A mass murderer is scheduled to be executed tomorrow night in Florida. John Errol Ferguson was convicted of murdering eight people in the 1970s in the Miami area. Ferguson who is now 65 years old, was sentenced to death for the 1977 murders of six Carol City residents who were killed execution style following a drug-related robbery. Six months later, Ferguson abducted and killed a pair of high school students on their way to meet friends at an ice cream shop in Hialeah. The court has ruled that while he suffers from mental illness, he still holds a rational understanding of the crimes he committed. He is scheduled to be executed at 6 p.m.
