As an inmate at a correctional institution, Globe (defendant) slipped into the cell of a fellow inmate and killed him. Following the murder, an agent met with Globe, read him his Miranda rights, and asked Globe if he wanted to make a statement. Globe said, “Not at this time.” Seven hours later, another agent asked Globe if he was willing to make a station. Globe answers that he would if he could be with Busby, another inmate in the cell at the time of the murder. The agent read Globe and Busby their Miranda rights, and then they admitted to killing the inmate. Globe was then transferred to Florida State Prison and interviewed by an inspector. After being read his Miranda rights, Globe went into detail about planning and carrying out the murder.
