STARKE, Fla. (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a stay of execution for a Florida inmate who orchestrated the 1987 ambush murder of a prison guard, then published three books and maintained a blog while on death row.

 

   William Van Poyck (pronounced poyk) is set to die by lethal injection at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Florida State Prison for the murder of prison guard Fred Griffis. His case garnered international attention because Van Poyck went on to write books.

 

   The 58-year-old Van Poyck declined a final meal and visited Wednesday with his sister, four friends and a spiritual adviser.

 

   Van Poyck and Frank Valdes ambushed a prison van outside a West Palm Beach doctor's office in a failed attempt to free their friend, James O'Brien. Griffis was fatally shot.

 

Arrest made in Highland shooting

Wednesday, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney announced charges against a suspect in one Tuesday night shooting.

Davonta Coleman faces several charges after allegedly shooting six people outside of a north St. Louis home around 10:30 Tuesday night. The victims told police that two cars stopped in front of the house and Coleman got out of one vehicle and started shooting.

The incident could be the result of a dispute between two families, but the investigation continues. 

 

UPDATE at 4:05 PM: Police say that James Moon was last seen Tuesday afternoon in Lincoln County, MO. Officers believe he could be trying to get to Iowa.

 

A St. Charles County family is asking for help to find an elderly man who has been missing for a day.

81-year-old James Moon has been missing since 5:30 Tuesday morning. He was last seen at his house near Highway Y in O'Fallon, Missouri. Moon suffers from dementia and is diabetic. His family says he is does not drive and is probably disoriented.

Moon is 5'10" and weighs 140 pounds. He could be wearing blue jeans and a khaki colored cap. It is possible he is trying to hitchhike to his old home in Ste. Genevieve.

Anyone with information should call the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department at 636-949-0809.
