Rick Scott Signs Death Warrant for Paul Howell

Gov. Rick Scott has signed a death warrant for Paul Augustus Howell, a drug trafficker convicted in the 1992 bomb death of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jimmy Fulford.

The execution has been set for Feb. 26 at 6 p.m.

Howell, 47, now at Union Correctional Institute, was sentenced to death in 1995.

Fulford, 35, died after opening a booby-trapped package during a traffic stop on Interstate 10 in Jefferson County that was intended for two women in Marianna who knew about a drug-related murder.

Comments are now closed.
