Death Sentence Even In Light of the ''Avoid Arrest'' Aggravator Being Stricken

In Connor v. State, 803 So. 2d 598 (Fla. 2001), this Court affirmed the death sentence, even in light of the avoid arrest aggravator being stricken. See id. at 612. In that case, the remaining aggravators were: (1) cold, calculated, and premeditated (CCP); (2) heinous atrocious and cruel (HAC); (3) murder committed while engaged in a kidnapping; (4) previous capital felony. See id. at 604. The trial court did not find any statutory mitigators in that case, but it did find four nonstatutory mitigators: (1) defendant suffered from a mental illness at the time of the crime; (2) defendant was a good father; (3) defendant would die in prison if given a life sentence; (4) defendant had no disciplinary problems in prison.
