Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday signed a death warrant and scheduled a Feb. 23 execution of Donald David Dillbeck, who was convicted in the 1990 stabbing death of a woman in a Tallahassee mall parking lot, according to documents filed at the Florida Supreme Court.

Dillbeck was serving a life sentence for killing a police officer when he walked away from a catering function in Quincy where he and other inmates were working.

He walked to Tallahassee, got a knife, and tried to carjack a vehicle, according to court documents.

Faye Vann, who was sitting in the car, resisted and was fatally stabbed.

Dillbeck, now 59, was arrested after crashing the car and was convicted in 1991 of first-degree murder, armed robbery and armed burglary, Department of Corrections records show.

Dillbeck would be the first Florida inmate executed since Gary Ray Bowles, who was executed in August 2019 for a 1994 murder in Jacksonville.
