A drug dealer is scheduled to be executed for the murder of a Florida Highway Patrol trooper 21 years ago.
Paul Augustus Howell is set to die Tuesday for the Feb. 1, 1992, death of Trooper Jimmy Fulford, who was killed when a booby-trapped microwave oven exploded.
Howell had planned for the bomb to kill two women with the bomb, but Fulford opened the package containing the microwave during a traffic stop. It blew up.
The 47-year-old Howell is scheduled to die at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Florida State Prison near Starke pending a last-ditch stay his lawyers are seeking in state and federal courts.
