Richard McCoy v. State of Florida
Mr. McCoy was convicted of the first-degree murder of Shervie Ann Elliot, who was fatally shot in 2000 in the liquor store where she worked. The jury voted 7-5 to recommend a death sentence and the trial court condemned him to death. This Court upheld his sentence on direct appeal and Mr. McCoy filed a post-conviction challenge in trial court. It was denied and this appeal followed.
