Convicted Killer Nelson Serrano Moved to Death Row

POLK COUNTY -- Polk County inmate and convicted murderer Nelson Ivan Serrano, who was sentenced to die on June 26, was moved out of the Polk County Jail Thursday morning.

Serrano was taken by Polk County deputies to the Florida Department of Corrections Reception Medical Center in Lake Butler, where all death row inmates are initially received.

A judge officially sentenced Serrano to lethal injection for killing George Gonsalves, Frank Dosso and Diane and George Patisso in Dember of 1997.

Serrano's sentence and conviction will be automatically appealed to the Florida Supreme Court, which is standard procedure.
