    Allen Ward Cox - Florida




    Summary of Offense:

    Allen Ward Cox was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Thomas Baker. The murder occurred on December 21, 1998 at the Lake Correctional Institute, where Cox was an inmate serving several life sentences for kidnapping, sexual battery and aggravated battery. On December 20, 1998, Cox noticed that someone had broken into his personal footlocker and stolen $500. According to the testimony of several inmates, Cox announced to the other inmates in his dormitory that he would give $50 to anyone who would identify the thief. Cox threatened to kill the thief upon discovering his identity and indicated no concern for the consequences.

    On December 21, 1998, during the inmates' lunch hour, Cox motioned for Thomas Baker to come over to him. Cox hit Baker, knocking him to the ground. Baker struggled to free himself from the attack and repeatedly denied stealing the $500. Cox then stabbed Baker three times with an ice-pick-shaped shank. Cox fled behind the prison pump house and hid the shank in a pipe. After being stabbed, Thomas Baker fled the scene to nearby correctional officers. Baker identified his attacker as “Big Al, Echo Dorm, Quad Three.” Baker hysterically motioned to the officers that he was having trouble breathing and could feel his lungs filling up with blood. Baker died en route to the hospital. Medical examiners testified the fatal stab wound pierced Baker’s lungs and aorta. Cox returned to his dorm where he confronted Donny Cox (no relation) about his stolen money. Cox threatened Donny and told him he would kill him too if he had anything to do with the stolen money. Cox returned to his cell where he attacked his cellmate Lawrence Wood. Cox told Wood he was lucky because he would also have been stabbed if Cox had not already discarded the shank.

    Cox was sentenced to death in Lake County on July 24, 2000.

    LCI inmate asks judge to ‘please’ sentence him to death

    By Frank Stanfield
    Daily Commercial

    TAVARES – A man sentenced to die by lethal injection for killing another prisoner 19 years ago is up for resentencing, but he has told a judge he would rather be executed.

    Allen Cox, 55, citing poor health, a comfortable, safe cell on death row and fears he will be preyed upon by prisoners in general population, has asked Circuit Judge Larry Semento to keep his death sentence intact.


    “But if you deside (sic) to sentence me to life the very first time one of those scum bags trys (sic) to rob me I promise you that I will put a big hole in his heart the same way I did the last one and his blood will also be on your hands as well as mine.”


    Cox was convicted of stabbing Thomas Baker, 25, with a homemade knife at Lake Correctional Institute just before Christmas 1998 because he believed Baker stole almost $500 cash he had collected for drug transactions behind bars.


    It’s not unheard of for a death row inmate to volunteer for execution, said John Spivey, executive assistant public defender. Public defenders still work for the defendant.


    “We
    almost become an agent of the judge,” he said. Public defender investigators gather mitigating evidence that might exclude the prisoner from death, like mental illness or brain injuries. “Our duty is not really changed.”

    Prosecutors also keep working while awaiting a ruling from the judge, said Assistant State Attorney Walter Forgie.

    Cox sent a letter to the trial judge asking for the death sentence shortly after he was convicted.

    “I don’t want to die an old man in prison. They will be doing me a favor if they give me a shot and put me to sleep,” he told Circuit Judge T. Michael Johnson.

    Cox is entitled to a new sentencing trial because recent court rulings demand that juries be unanimous in death sentence recommendations. His jury in 2000 recommended death by a 10-2 vote.

    In his letter to the judge dated Oct. 23, he said he didn’t want his family to have to come down from Kentucky to testify on his behalf.

    “Secound (sic) if I were to get life DOC will lock me in a cell for five years with no TV, no radio, no fan, no canteen and no visits and then after those five years Ill (sic) be sent to one of the very worst prisons in the state of Florida where the blacks prey on any whites that show the least bit of weakness. They rob, rape and beat up and extort protection money from the old and weak and Ill (sic) be 60 years old in five years way to (sic) old for all that crap.

    “I have been to these types of prisons where they send ex-death row inmates and you have to carry a knife with you at all times and sleep with one under your pillow and you MUST be prepared to use it.”

    Cox said he has “several” medical problems “and I suspect the skin cancer has already spread and will kill me in a few years.”

    He asked the judge to “please” sentence him to death. He said he knows the judge will have concerns “but I’m fully aware of what im (sic) doing.″

    “And if in a few years they decide to execute me so be it. I’m ready to see if there really is anything on the other side but I dought (sic) there is.”

    He said he would accept whatever the judge decided but stressed there was no point in the court delaying his request “because I will not ever change my mind about this.”

    Cox was already serving three life sentences, including one for breaking a store clerk’s hip when he threw her over a wall and raping her on top of a mound of fire ants during a robbery.

    Johnson, who spent years as a public defender, said Cox had forced him into making “the most difficult decision as a judge and as a human being,” but he ruled the state proved four aggravating circumstances: He was imprisoned, had prior violent felonies, the crime was heinous, atrocious and cruel, and it was cold, calculated and premeditated.
