After nine years in prison, Bundy was found guilty and given the death penalty, despite fighting for his life. Bundy failed to appeal his conviction and take his case to the United States Supreme Court. 

He also provided information about some unsolved crimes to evade Florida’s electric chair; however, he was ultimately executed in 1989 after a futile attempt to avoid punishment. During the penalty portion of his trial in February 1980, Bundy wed Carole Ann Boone, a mother of two, in a courtroom. 

He had dated Boone before his initial arrest. He proposed in front of the court, and she said yes; As a result, Florida recognized the marriage as valid. Boone eventually concluded that Bundy was to blame for the crimes. A Stranger Beside Me, Rule’s book, says that she filed for divorce from him three years before he was put to death. 

Boone stopped visiting Bundy in prison for the last two years. Bundy was executed in the electric chair “Old Sparky” at the Florida State Prison on January 24, 1989, around seven in the morning. 

Numerous people gathered outside the prison to celebrate Bundy’s execution and even fired rockets. In Gainesville, there was no public memorial service for Bundy’s cremation. Instead, he requested that his ashes be scattered before being executed in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, where he killed at least four victims.
