STARKE, Fla. (AP)UPDATE: Florida executes a man convicted in 1994 rape, murder of girl; state's 6th execution this year.

 

The execution of 45-year-old Eddie Wayne Davis was scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at Florida state prison. 

Davis was convicted in 1995 of kidnapping Kimberly Waters from an ex-girlfriend's home in Lakeland before raping and murdering her, then leaving her body in a dumpster.

Florida uses a three-drug cocktail to execute prisoners: midazolam hydrochloride, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride.

The drugs are administered intravenously, and are intended to induce unconsciousness, paralysis and cardiac arrest.

Davis had filed a final appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing that a health problem he suffers from makes the use of midazolam extremely painful and would cause unnecessary suffering.
