Death Row Inmate Denied Stay of Execution

The Supreme Court has denied a stay of execution for a Florida capital inmate scheduled to be executed Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Robert Waterhouse, 65, was convicted of murdering a St. Petersburg woman, who was raped, severely beaten, and dragged into Tampa Bay where she drowned.

The inmate has been on Florida’s death row for 31 years.

Previous appeals and clemency requests have been denied, so it looks like the lethal injection will go forward as scheduled.
