TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Supreme Court is rejecting a last minute appeal from a man scheduled to die for murdering a Florida Panhandle man.

Johnny Shane Kormondy is scheduled to die by lethal injection on Jan. 15.

Lawyers for Kormondy tried to assert the process used by Gov. Rick Scott in determining who to execute violates the constitution. The argument was rejected by all seven justices.

Authorities say Kormondy and two accomplices forced their way at gunpoint into the Pensacola home of Gary McAdams and his wife one early morning in July 1993. The men repeatedly raped McAdams’ wife, and then Kormondy shot McAdams in the back of the head.

Kormondy’s accomplices, Curtis Buffkin and James Hazen, are both serving life sentences for their parts in the attack.
