A Florida death-row inmate who said his execution would be “an act of cold-blooded murder” is dead.
Fifty-seven-year-old Michael Lambrix was put to death by lethal injection at Florida State prison in Starke last night.
Lambrix had been convicted of killing Clarence Moore and Alicia Bryant outside his trailer near LaBelle in Hendry County.
Prosecutors said the double murder followed a long night of drinking in 1983.
Lambrix had a Thanksgiving feast for his last meal.
Michael Lambrix had turkey breasts, drumsticks, giblet gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and brown sugar, mixed vegetables with butter, dinner roll, pumpkin pie with whip cream, chocolate milk , and vanilla caramel gelato ice cream.
Lambrix visited with family members, including his siblings, children and parents, between 8 and 11 a.m.
He then met with his spiritual adviser at noon.
The Dept. of Corrections said Lambrix stayed up most of the night but was calm and in good spirits before his execution, according to a spokeswoman.
