Pinellas Killer Set for Execution

Pinellas Killer Set for Execution

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(970 WFLA/ AP)- A man who kidnapped and killed a 10-year-old Pinellas County girl more than 32 years ago is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection.   

Mann kidnapped her, took her to an orange grove, cut her throat and then beat her head with a pole with a concrete base. He then went home and tried to kill himself, telling the responding police officers he had "done something stupid." 

Then-Gov. Bob Graham signed Mann's first death warrant in 1986, but appeals dragged out his case.
