Ex-Florida cop to be executed

A decorated Florida police officer was scheduled to be put to death Tuesday night.

More than 20 years ago Manuel Pardo was fired for lying under oath. After that he turned to life as a vigilante slaying nine people in three months in 1986.

During his 1988 trial, he asked for the death penalty and could finally get it.

Pardo's attorneys are still trying to block the execution stating that he is mentally ill.
