    Lancelot Uriley Armstrong - Florida






    Summary of Offense:

    In the early morning hours of February 17, 1990, Lancelot Armstrong and Michael Coleman entered Church’s Fried Chicken restaurant under the pretense of visiting Kay Allen. Allen was the assistant manager of Church’s and the former girlfriend of the defendant. Initially, Allen refused to meet with Armstrong, but eventually accompanied him to his car outside, while Coleman stayed in the restaurant. According to testimony, the defendant told Allen he was going to rob the restaurant and that, if she did not cooperate, he might have to kill her. All the other employees had gone home, so Armstrong, Allen and Coleman were alone. When getting the money out of the safe, Allen managed to pull the silent alarm. Deputy Sheriffs Robert Sallustio and John Greeney arrived at the scene to find Armstrong in the car and Coleman still in the restaurant. Shots fired from inside the restaurant distracted the officers, enabling Armstrong to reach for his gun and to open fire on the officers as well. Sallustio was struck three times and Greeney was killed instantly. Armstrong and Coleman fled the state and were apprehended in Maryland. Investigators determined that bullets from Armstrong’s gun killed Greeney because he suffered from shots fired at close-range.

    Armstrong was sentenced to death in Broward County on June 20, 1991.

    Co-defendant information:
    Michael Coleman, the co-defendant, received life in prison for his role in the robbery and shooting.

    Factors Contributing to the Delay in the Imposition of the Sentence:

    Armstrong’s Direct Appeal took over three years to complete. Also, in consideration of the financial state of the CCR, a motion to toll time was granted regarding the filing of a 3.850 Motion until 09/01/97. His 3.850 Motion took over fours years in the State Circuit Court.

    Case Information:

    On 06/26/91, Armstrong filed a Direct Appeal in the Florida Supreme Court. Among the 24 issues raised in that appeal, four points were particularly noteworthy. First, Armstrong believed a new trial was needed because Allen lied about material facts at trial. Secondly, Armstrong contends that the State submitted inadmissible evidence in order to refresh the memory of a witness. In the penalty phase, the defendant claimed that the judge arrived at a sentencing decision prior to Armstrong being given the opportunity to speak on his behalf. Lastly, Armstrong believes that some of the aggravating factors applied to his case were duplicative. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction and sentence of death on 08/11/94.

    On 02/24/95, Armstrong filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the United States Supreme Court, which was denied on 04/24/95.

    On 03/18/97, Armstrong filed a 3.850 Motion in the Circuit Court, which was denied on 05/25/01.

    On 08/27/01, Armstrong filed an appeal of his 3.850 Motion in the Florida Supreme Court. On 10/30/03, the Florida Supreme Court affirmed the denial of Armstrong’s 3.850 Motion in part, vacated his death sentence and remanded for a new penalty phase. In lieu of one of Armstrong’s prior felony convictions being vacated, which was used as an aggravating circumstance during his original penalty phase, the Florida Supreme Court remanded the case for resentencing.

    On 08/27/01, Armstrong filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus in the Florida Supreme Court, which was denied on 10/30/03.

    On 02/18/04, Armstrong filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the United States Supreme Court, which was denied on 05/17/04.

    On 06/15/07, Armstrong was again sentenced to death.

    On 09/09/09, Armstrong filed his second Direct Appeal in the Florida Supreme Court, which is pending.

    Court overturns three death sentences, including cop killer's

    The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday overturned death sentences for three men, including a convicted cop killer.

    Lancelot Uriley Armstrong was convicted of killing John Greeney, a Broward County sheriff's deputy and Air Force veteran, during a 1990 armed robbery at a Church's Fried Chicken in Fort Lauderdale. The jury voted 9-3 to sentence him to death and gave another man involved in the armed robbery a life sentence.

    Now, Armstrong, as well as Donald Otis Williams, convicted of kidnapping and murdering an 81-year-old woman in 2010, and William M. Kopsho, sentenced for killing his wife in 2000 after learning she was having an affair, will have new sentencing hearings.

    It's possible they could still be sentenced to death, but they could also see their sentences commuted to life in prison.

    Courts will empanel new juries to decide how to sentence each of these men, though they will not determine whether they are guilty, as their first-degree murder convictions have not been overturned.

    If the Florida Legislature updates the state's death penalty laws to require a unanimous vote for a death sentence -- as state Sen. Randolph Bracy, D-Orlando, has proposed (SB 280) -- then a vote of all 12 jurors could put them to death. Anything less would lead to a life sentence. (The state Supreme Court threw out Florida's death penalty laws as unconstitutional last year because they did not require unanimous jury votes.)

    By demanding new sentencing hearings in these cases, the court is putting into practice a Dec. 22 ruling that could lead to life sentences for some of the 200-plus death-row prisoners whose cases were finalized after a key U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2002.

    It's likely similar decisions will continue to trickle out of the court in the coming months.

    In the December rulings, the justices decided that death sentences finalized after June 2002 were unconstitutional because they did not require a unanimous jury vote and because the judge could impose a death sentence without the jury's approval. It's a standard critics, including Senior Justice James Perry, have criticized as "arbitrary."

    Older sentences still stand. The court affirmed two of them Thursday, as well, including the case of Stanley McCloud, convicted of killing his wife with a .357 magnum in front of their two young children.
