Angel Diaz - from Karl Keys BLOG

Finally, as noted by DPIC, the last execution scheduled for 2006 involves a Florida inmate, Angel Nieves-Diaz.

Diaz defended himself pro se at trial yet he did not speak English.

Diaz, a native of Puerto Rico, was convicted and sentenced to death in 1986 for a murder in connection with a robbery of a bar in Miami in 1979.

The case sat idle for 5 years until an accomplice, who was already serving a life sentence, came forward implicating Diaz.

The accomplice received another life sentence.
