September 28, 2011
The Florida man who resided on death row for 30 years after his conviction for gunning down a Coral Gables Police officer was executed today by lethal injection. He was declared dead at 7:14 p.m.
Manuel Valle, 61, was put to death by lethal injection at Florida State Prison for the murder of Officer Louis Pena, who had pulled Valle over for running a red light in 1978.
Valle chose not to make a final statement. Valle is the first inmate executed using the sedative pentobarbital. Georgia resumed executions last with the sedative, executing cop killer Troy Davis.
