Former LI Man Executed in Fla. After More Than 30 Years on Death Row

Robert Waterhouse, formerly of Greenport, was pronounced dead at Florida State Prison at 8:22am on Wednesday after receiving a lethal injection procedure mandated by Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Waterhouse,  65 at the time of his death, was sentenced to life in prison in 1967 after he raped and murdered 77-year-old Greenport resident Ella Carter in 1966. While out on parole in 1980, Waterhouse raped and killed Deborah Kammerer in St. Petersburg, Fla. Waterhouse was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death. A stay of execution was issued just four days before his scheduled execution in 1985 and a judge order that he be resentenced in 1988 due to mitigating evidence that his rights were violated during his sentencing for the 1967 conviction. However, through a unanimous jury vote Waterhouse was once again sentenced to death in 1990. Waterhouse is the 7nd inmate to have been put to death in Florida since the reinstitution of executions in 1979 and the fourth inmate to be executed in the U.S. this year.
