STARKE, Fla. - Oba Chandler is dead after a lethal injection was given to him at the Florida State Prison on Tuesday afternoon. The 65-year-old accused rapist and killer was on death row for 17 years after being convicted of a triple homicide in 1994.
Joan Rogers and her two teenage daughters, Christie and Michelle, were tossed into Tampa Bay to drown after being assaulted by Chandler in 1989. The ropes that bound the three to concrete blocks didn't hold.
"They were found nude from the waist down," said Former St. Pete Police Detective Cindra Leedy. "Their feet were tied together. We believe they were all three raped."
After the injection was given around 8 minutes after 4:00, Chandler was pronounced dead at 4:25 pm.
