State of Florida to execute man convicted of fatally stabbing 4

STARKE, Fla. -- Florida is set to execute a man convicted of fatally stabbing his ex-wife, young daughter and two in-laws in 1985.
 
Jerry Correll was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection Thursday at Florida State Prison. 

The 59-year-old Correll was found guilty and sentenced to death for killing his former wife Susan Correll; their 5-year-old daughter, Tuesday; Susan Correll's mother, Mary Lou Hines; and Susan Correll's sister Marybeth Jones.
 
 Correll would become the 22nd inmate to be executed under Gov. Rick Scott -- the most executions under a single governor since the death penalty was reinstated in Florida in 1979.
 
Twenty-one inmates were executed during former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's two full terms.
