Judges okays Florida's lethal injection drug mix
The ruling now heads to the Florida Supreme Court for review. The high court temporarily stayed Valle’s execution last week to allow so Scola could hold the hearing on the safety and efficacy of the drug. Valle’s execution is scheduled for Sept. 1.
Valle was sentenced to death by three different juries for shooting and killing Coral Gables Police Officer Louis Pena in 1978.
