Death Row inmate Mike Lambrix has lost his appeal for a new sentence.

Lambrix was one of the subjects in the WLRN documentary Cell 1, where we looked at Florida’s death penalty and the limbo it was in for more than a year.

Hours after listening to arguments about the impact of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down the state's death-penalty sentencing system, the Florida Supreme Court issued an indefinite stay of execution for Cary Michael Lambrix, who had been scheduled to die Feb. 11.

Tuesday's unanimous order also denied Lambrix's request to send the case to a lower court, meaning the Florida Supreme Court is likely to weigh in on the sentencing issue.
