Jennings raises both hands up, apparently surrendering. That's when Officer Pearce Martinez runs up to Jennings, immediately launching three haymaker punches to the man's head. While Martinez is handcuffing Jennings without any difficulty, Lutchman is striking him with his baton and then drives Jennings head down into the counter with his elbow. The criminal complaint said that Jennings was flailing his arms and resisted arrest in the store. A police source cautioned against drawing conclusions without knowing what was being said between Jennings and Lutchman.
Jennings was charged with robbery and held without bail until July 13 when he was released after the DA's office did not present the case to a grand jury. Charlie Crist had the right to schedule the execution because he let four years pass before setting a new execution date. Tompkins also had appealed the Turco action. Tompkins had a final visit with his mother, Gladys Staley of Brooksville, on Wednesday morning and ordered a final meal of fried chicken and banana split ice cream, said Gretl Plessinger, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Corrections.
Across a highway outside the prison, about 40 death penalty opponents gathered for a prayer vigil. His lawyers had asked the court to delay the execution, saying more time was needed to complete testing on DNA evidence found on and near the girl's body. The court said it would not entertain any motions for rehearing.
Also turning down Tompkins was the trial court in Tampa, which denied his motion to vacate his judgment and sentence and his motion for a stay of execution.
