James Dailey Granted Temporary Stay of Execution

A federal judge Wednesday granted a temporary stay of execution to 73-year-old James Dailey, convicted in Florida of stabbing and drowning a 14-year-old girl in 1985.

U.S. District Judge William Jung ordered the stay until Dec. 30, because Dailey's new attorneys need more time to research and present their case. The execution had been set for Nov. 7 at Florida State Prison.

Five former Florida death-row inmates on Tuesday presented a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis pleading for a stay, saying Dailey's conviction is flawed.

Authorities say Dailey and two other men met Shelly Boggio and her twin sister when the girls were hitchhiking near St. Petersburg. Boggio's body was found soon after floating near a fishing pier.

Dailey was convicted on the testimoney of one of the other men, Jack Pearcy, who told police it was Dailey who stabbed the teenage victim and held her down in the water. Pearcy was also convicted, but he was sentenced not to death but to life in prison.

Does Mr. Dailey have any culpability in this matter? Was he near the crime scene when this crime was committed? I have not studied the case.

Doing a quick search it sounds like there could me more to this story, reading the https://www.tampabay.com/news/florida/2019/10/04/doubts-linger-but-james-dailey-is-set-to-die-for-murder-of-pinellas-girl/-------From the article: Shelly Boggio’s nude body was found May 6, 1985, in the waters near the Walsingham Road bridge in Indian Rocks Beach. The Kenneth City girl had been beaten, choked and stabbed 31 times before she was held underwater and drowned in the Intracoastal Waterway. Pearcy was one of the last people seen with the girl. He knew her, having bought marijuana from her family, according to court records. He also knew Dailey, who stayed in an extra bedroom in the house Pearcy shared with his girlfriend. The night before her death, Boggio and her twin sister, Stacy, and another young woman were hitchhiking in St. Petersburg. They met up with Pearcy, Dailey, and another man, who took them to a bar. They later ended up at Pearcy’s house. Sometime that night, the other two girls left. Witnesses said they later saw Boggio alone at a bar with a man. A knife found in the water was said to belong to Pearcy. When questioned later, he told detectives that Dailey killed the girl. Pearcy’s pregnant girlfriend, and another man who was staying with them, told investigators they saw Pearcy and Dailey arrive home the morning of the murder and that Dailey’s clothes were wet. Dailey would later testify in a post-conviction hearing that Pearcy had woken him that morning and said he needed to talk. They drove to a lagoon near the Belleaire Causeway, Dailey said. Pearcy told him that his girlfriend wanted Dailey gone so they could turn his bedroom into a nursery for their child. While they were there, Dailey said, they played with a Frisbee, which he said he had to retrieve after it flew into the water, which explained his wet clothing."-----"Sometime that night, the other two girls left.
