Posted Thursday, July 10th 2014 @ 10pm

       STARKE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has executed a man for the 1994 rape and slaying of an 11-year-old girl.
 
       Eddie Wayne Davis was executed by lethal injection Thursday at 6:43 p.m. It was the state's sixth execution this year, and 13th in the past two.
 
       The 45-year-old Davis was convicted in 1995 of first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual battery in the slaying of Kimberly Waters, the daughter of a woman Davis had dated briefly.
 
       According to court documents, Davis broke into his ex-girlfriend's trailer seeking money for beer, found Waters sleeping and raped her. Prosecutors say he then took her to a nearby Moose Lodge, where he beat her and suffocated her with a piece of plastic.
