Murder convict waits for prison evaluation

A former Shands at UF nurse convicted of killing a UF student in November 2005 is waiting to be assigned to a Florida prison.

Oliver Travis O'Quinn was found guilty Friday of first degree murder in a Gainesville courthouse and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

He was accused of killing Michelle Ann Herndon by injecting her with propofol, a powerful anesthetic.

O'Quinn is being held at the Alachua County Jail, and he will soon be sent to a Florida Department of Corrections regional classification center, said Spencer Mann, State Attorney's Office spokesman.

At the center, O'Quinn will be evaluated and assigned to an "appropriate" prison, Mann said.
