ANTHONY SHORE. Condemned following his conviction in the murders of four females in the Houston area over a 9-year period, Shore was scheduled to be executed on October 18, 2017. However, his execution was stayed by a district court judge to allow time to investigate claims that a fellow death row inmate, Larry Swearingen, had tried to persuade Mr. Shore to confess to the crime for which Swearingen was sentenced to death. Swearingen, who was scheduled to be executed in November 2017, also received a stay.
