Florida executes serial killer who murdered six women

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Reuters) - A Florida serial killer who admitted he murdered six women in the 1980s to satisfy his sexual urges was put to death by lethal injection on Thursday.

David Alan Gore, 58, was pronounced dead at the Florida State Prison near Starke at 6:19 p.m. local time, according to governor's spokeswoman Amy Graham.

The state executed Gore for the 1983 kidnapping and murder of his final victim, Vero Beach teenager Lynn Elliott.
