A Florida prison inmate already on death row for killing a fellow inmate has received another death sentence for killing a different inmate.
The Pensacola News Journal reports that 41-year-old Rocky Ali Beamon received his new sentence last week. He pleaded guilty in August to first-degree murder.
Authorities say Beamon strangled and stabbed 27-year-old Nicholas Anderson in January 2017 when they shared a cell at the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution in Milton.
He had previously been sentenced to death for fatally choking and stabbing Bruce Hunsicker in the shower area of Apalachee Correctional Institution in Sneads in July 2012. Beamon said he killed Hunsicker because the man was a sex offender.
Beamon was there serving a life sentence for a 2005 murder case from Hillsborough County.

Rocky Ali Beamon, a three-time killer who publicly professed his hatred for sex offenders, had his wish granted Friday when he was sentenced to death for the 2017 murder of 27-year-old Nicholas Anderson.
Beamon had been previously sentenced to die on Jan. 28 for killing a fellow inmate in 2012 at Apalachee Correctional Institution in Jackson County. He had pleaded guilty to the crime and waived his right to trial.
Anderson, who was serving time on a child molestation charge, was Beamon’s cellmate at the Santa Rosa Correctional Institution on Jan. 22, 2017 when he was killed. He was found bound and strangled, his neck cut with a homemade weapon, according to a news release issued Monday by the First Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office.
Beamon’s victim in the 2012 homicide was Brian Hunsicker, a registered sex offender. Beamon stalked Hunsicker for days before the victim was choked and stabbed more than 80 times with a homemade shank in the shower of the prison dormitory, reports said.
In May of 2018, Beamon wrote a letter to 14th District Judicial Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson in which he professed that killing sex offenders “was the best feeling I’ve had in a long time.”
He pledged to continue targeting victims if he was not sentenced to death.
“I’ll do my best to eliminate every single one until one of three things happens: (1) someone kills me, (2) I run out of people to kill, or (3) they put me where I can kill no more, death row,” the letter said.
He told Judge Patterson “if you don’t send me to death row, I vow to dedicate my next (killing) to you.”
Beamon killed Hunsicker and Anderson while serving a life sentence for the 2005 killing of a woman from whom he had purchased drugs.
First Judicial Circuit Court Judge Darlene Dickey issued the death sentence verdict handed down Friday.
Beamon had been held prior to sentencing at the Florida State Prison under close management in a single-man cell, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.
