Florida executes Miami triple murderer


STARKE -- Miami triple murderer Thomas Knight was executed Tuesday evening, offering no apology to his victims’ families or last words at all.

He was pronounced dead at 6:45 p.m.

Knight loaded up on sweets and visited with a friend earlier in the day and his demeanor before the execution was calm, a Florida corrections spokeswoman said Tuesday afternoon.

Knight ate portions of sweet potato pie, coconut cake, banana nut bread, vanilla ice cream, strawberry-and-butter pecan ice cream and Fritos corn chips — all washed down by a quarter of a bottle of Sprite.

The condemned inmate – who has been awaiting execution for nearly four decades – visited with an unidentified friend Tuesday, one day after meeting with four of his sisters.
