Florida death row: Here are the women awaiting execution at Florida State Prison
Nearly 300 people – 295 – have been sentenced to death and executed in Florida since the first in 1924, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. Of those, two have been women.
In total, 19 women have received death sentences. However, 12 were re-sentenced to life in prison or died in prison waiting for their sentence, which was then vacated, according to FDOC, and two had their sentences carried out in 1998 and 2022.
As of February 2023, there are three women on Florida's death row awaiting their execution.
