MIAMI (AP) — The South Florida home of imprisoned former NFL star O.J. Simpson will be auctioned off in October as part of a bank foreclosure proceeding.

Miami-Dade Circuit Court records show that a judge issued a final order last week for JPMorgan Chase Bank. The 4,233-square-foot home near Miami has been in foreclosure proceedings for about two years. The online auction of the house is set for Oct. 29.

Simpson was convicted in 2008 in Nevada of the kidnapping and armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas. Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of killing his ex-wife and her friend.

Court documents show Simpson owes more than $796,000 in principal and interest on the Florida property. There’s also nearly $42,000 in unpaid property taxes and insurance premiums of about $43,000.
