Fifty-eight-year-old William Van Poyck, sentenced to death in 1988 for the murder of a prison guard, is due to be executed in Florida on 12 June. Claims persist that he received inadequate legal representation at trial and that he was not the “triggerman”. The alleged gunman died in prison in 1999, apparently beaten to death by guards.
