Death-row inmates are fearing the coronavirus over the execution chamber.
On Friday, California serial killer Scott Erskine, who murdered two young boys in 1993, became the latest San Quentin State Prison fiend to apparently die from COVID-19 complications.
The 57-year-old convict was pronounced dead on Friday at a non-prison hospital, reported San Diego TV station KFMB.
On March 27, 1993, Erskine killed 13-year-old Charlie Keever and Jonathon Sellers, 9, who were riding their bikes that day.
Their bodies were discovered two days later.
DNA found on the victims was matched to Erskine, who had already been behind bars at San Quentin while serving a 70-year sentence for rape, penetration with a foreign object and oral copulation with force.
He was sentenced to death in 2004 for the first-degree murders of the boys, noted KFMB.
Erskine admitted to raping and murdering Renee Baker in Florida in 1989 but wasn’t formally charged in her death until more than a decade later when another DNA test for Baker matched a sample left behind by the killer, according to people pill.
