TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott has signed a death warrant for a man convicted of nine murders.
Manuel Pardo Jr. is scheduled to die by lethal injection at Florida State Prison near Raiford at 6 p.m. Dec. 11.
Pardo, 56, faces the death penalty for nine execution-style murders in 1986. When police arrested him, they found a collection of Nazi memorabilia in his apartment.
Pardo, a former Sweetwater police officer, confessed to the killings, but said his victims were drug dealers who "have no right to live."
Pardo was convicted of all nine murders in 1988 and sentenced to death.
