Opponents of the death penalty met at the Florida capitol to remember the latest person to die by lethal injection.
William Van Poyck was pronounced dead Wednesday evening, making the third person executed this year.
The Citizens Against Death Penalty met to remember him. The group says they meet every time after someone is executed, saying killing another person is wrong.
Sheila Meehan, a spokesperson for the group, says, "we as citizens in the State of Florida and taxpayers in the State of Florida are participating in the killing of a human being. Something of course we all say is wrong."
Van Poyck was executed for the murder of a guard at a 1987 prison van ambush.
