Florida executes ringleader of 1993 home invasion that ended with man's murder, wife's rape

January 15, 2015 - 5:30 PM

STARKE, Fla. - Florida has executed the convicted ringleader of a 1993 home-invasion robbery that ended with the murder of a banker and the rape of his wife.

Johnny Shane Kormondy was pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m. Thursday (0116 GMT Friday) at Florida State Prison, shortly after the lethal injection was administered. The execution was delayed by two hours by a late appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court that was eventually denied.

The 42-year-old Kormondy and two associates were convicted of forcing their way into the Pensacola home of Gary and Cecilia McAdams in 1993. Gary was fatally shot, and Cecilia raped repeatedly.

The two other men were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
