The execution of Manuel Valle is set for Aug. 2, under the first death warrant signed by Gov. Rick Scott.

A jury recommended sentencing him to death in 1981 by a 9-3 vote for murdering a Coral Gables police officer in 1978. He stretched the case over decades with a series of appeals, which the United States Supreme Court repeatedly declined to hear.

His case summary can be found here, and his Department of Corrections file is here. His warrant, which includes his judgement, is below.
