KILLER OF 5 IS LATEST PUT TO DEATH IN FLORIDA

A man who killed five people in a three-state spree 13 years ago and once urged authorities to "pull the switch" was executed today in Florida's electric chair.

Daniel Remeta, 40, was put to death for the slaying of a convenience store clerk. He was pronounced dead at 7:12 a.m.

It was the fourth execution in Florida in nine days.

Judy Buenoano, 54, dubbed the "Black Widow," was executed Monday for poisoning her husband in 1971.
