Maimi Sun Gym Gang Daniel Lugo has been sent to Death Row for the gruesome murder of a Golden Beach couple in 1995 is getting a new sentencing hearing.
Florida’s high court this in 2017 tossed out the death sentence for Noel Doorbal, one of the notorious Sun Gym crew whose story was made into the movie “Pain & Gain.”
The decision was not a surprise. Most Florida Death Row inmates from the past two decades are getting new sentencing hearings because of recent changes to the death-penalty law.
According to Mamiherald, The U.S. Supreme Court in 2016 ruled that Florida’s death-penalty sentencing system was unconstitutional, and the state justices later ruled that many inmates slated for execution should get new sentencing hearings because juries did not vote unanimously for execution.
Jurors voted 8-4 to send Doorbal to Death Row. He and Daniel Lugo, weightlifters who worked out at the Sun Gym in Miami Lakes, have been on Death Row since they were convicted and sentenced in 1998. Lugo, 54, is also likely to get a new sentencing hearing.
Doorbal, 45, remains convicted of the murders. If Miami-Dade prosecutors decide to again seek the death penalty, a new jury will be selected to hear evidence and decide whether execution is the proper punishment.
Hoping to get some of his fortunes, the two men kidnapped Frank Griga, 33, a Hungarian immigrant who had earned his fortune in the 900-phone sex business, and his girlfriend, Krisztina Furton. Inside Doorbal’s apartment, the kidnapping went horribly awry. Griga fought back and was beaten to death. Furton was fatally drugged with horse tranquillizers.
The bodies were whisked away to a warehouse, where they were dismembered. Eventually, their body parts were found in drums and buckets discarded along rural highways in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
Who Is Daniel Lugo
In 1993 Daniel Lugo was the manager of the Sun Gym, a bodybuilder hangout in Miami Lakes, Florida.
In 1991, Lugo had been arrested and plead guilty to fraud, serving a fifteen-month sentence in addition to a three-year federal probation period.
He had been convicted of fraud for pretending to be part of a Hong Kong bank that was looking to invest in American small businesses– the scheme involved collecting up-front fees for loan insurance, and then not actually delivering any loans.Noel Doorbal worked part-time at the gym alongside Lugo.
During 1994, Carl Weekes moved from New York to Miami to live with his girlfriend’s cousin, Stevenson Pierre.
Pierre had been hired by Lugo in February 1994 to create a collection agency for overdue gym membership payments. When this didn’t work out, he remained at the gym first as the back-office manager in the weight room before ending up as a desk clerk.Jorge Delgado worked out with Daniel Lugo as his personal trainer at the Sun Gym.
It was Delgado’s relationship with Lugo that caused a rift between Delgado and the Sun Gym Gang’s first victim: Marc Schiller.
Jorge Delgado and Marc Schiller had been business partners since about 1991, and Schiller trusted Delgado so much that Delgado knew the alarm code and layout of Schiller’s home
