GOV. GRAHAM SIGNS DEATH WARRANT
Florida prisoner to get electric chair

FrmUPI and AP
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-Gov. Bob
Graham signed the fifth death warrant
of his administration yesterday, or-
dering convicted murderer Howard
Virgil Lee Douglas to die in Florida's
electric chair next week. Execution
wasset for7a.m. July 26.'
John Spenkelink, the first prisoner
put to death in the United States in
more than 12 years against his will,
died in the same electric chair May 25.
The other three Graham has ordered

executed all have won stays.
Douglas immediately requested a
stay from a Polk County circuit judge,
but was denied. His attorney argued the
state Supreme Court had considered
Douglas' past convictions in upholding
his sentence, and that Douglas' court-
appointed counsel had alcohol on his
breath during the trial.
DOUGLAS' ATTORNEYS said they
intended to file a petition for a stay with
the state Supreme Court, probably
today.

Douglas' death warrant expires at
noon Friday, July 17, giving defense at-
torneys just 11 days in which to win a
stay.
A hearing for a stay for Douglas was
scheduled later yesterday in Bartow.
His death warrant expires at noon on
Friday, July 27, giving defense attor-
neys 11 days to seek a stay in the
federal courts.
Douglas, 43, was sentenced to death
for the July 17, 1973 slaying of Jessie
Atkins Jr., near Bowling Green.
