TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Kimberly Waters was remembered by her grandmother as a girl with a healthy curiosity as the man who killed her waits for his execution.
Mary Hobbs said Tuesday that the 11-year-old loved wild flowers and butterflies and enjoyed swimming in the Weeki Wachee River.
Kimberly was raped and murdered in March 1994 by Eddie Wayne Davies. Davis is scheduled to be executed July 10.
Davis had briefly dated Kimberly's mother, Beverly Schultz, and broke into the family's home looking for beer money. Schultz was working a double shift at a nursing rehabilitation center.
Davis found Kimberly sleeping in her mother's bed and kidnapped her. Her body was found in a dumpster the next day.
