Florida: 100th Executed Inmate Criticizes DeSantis-“He’s Done a Lot Worse”

Date:

Florida’s 100th inmate has been executed and he criticized Governor DeSantis saying, “He’s done a lot worse.”

“For the first time in nearly four years, Florida executed a man Thursday for a carjacking that led to the brutal murder of a woman more than three decades ago.

Donald Dillbeck, 59, was pronounced dead at Florida State Prison at 6:13 p.m. ET, the governor’s office said. Dillbeck, who died by lethal injection, was condemned in the fatal stabbing of Faye Lamb Vann, 44 , in a Tallahassee mall parking lot.

The U.S. Supreme Court had declined a request by Dillbeck’s attorneys to stop his execution.

The death marked Florida’s 100th execution since the death penalty was reinstated by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1976 and executions resumed in the state in 1979.

Dillbeck killed Vann in carjacking

At the time of the murder, Dillbeck was a fugitive after escaping a work-release catering job in Gadsden County, where he was serving a life sentence for killing Lee County Deputy Dwight Lynn Hall , 31, in 1979. Dillbeck was 15 at the time.

Dillbeck fled to Florida, where the deputy found him in a Fort Myers Beach parking lot. While Hall was searching him, Dillbeck hit the deputy in the groin and ran. Hall tackled him and Dillbeck took Hall’s gun and shot him twice.

Dillbeck was 11 years into a life sentence for killing the deputy when he walked away from the work release assignment, according to court records. He then bought a paring knife and walked to Tallahassee.

In 1990, at the shopping mall where Vann was waiting for her family,  Dillbeck approached her car with the knife and demanded a ride, court records show.”
