A convicted double murderer sentenced to death for killing a little girl and a family friend who was babysitting is now in state prison and on death row.

On June 26, a judge sentenced Joseph Zieler to death for the murders of 11-year-old Robin Cornell and 32-year-old Lisa Story in 1990 inside a Cape Coral home.

Last month, Zieler was back in court facing another charge on top of his many appeals. He returned to court on July 5 for harassing the mother of his child victim.

The case was later dropped.
