Headline Goes Here

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A man who kidnapped, raped and murdered his ex-girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter is scheduled to be executed July 10.

Gov. Rick Scott signed the death warrant for Eddie Wayne Davis on Monday for murdering Kimberly Waters.

Davis broke into his ex-girlfriend's Polk County home on March 4, 1994, looking for beer money. He found Kimberly sleeping in her mother's bed, grabbed her, covered her mouth and kidnapped her.

Davis took the girl to his old trailer and raped her. Later, he beat her and placed plastic over her mouth and nose as she struggled to rip it off. After she stopped moving, Davis threw the girl's body in a dumpster.

Davis later confessed to the crime after investigators found Kimberly's blood on his boots and his DNA under the girl's fingernails.
