Man sentenced to death by lethal injection for double murder; scheduled for 6 P.M. Wednesday

Patrick Hannon, 53 is scheduled to die by lethal injection today at 6 P.M. after being convected for two murders back in 1991.

Hannon was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for the slayings of Brandon Snider and Robert Carter.

Authorities say Hannon and two other men went to the Cambridge Woods apartment of 27-year-old Brandon Snider and 28-year-old Robert Carter on January 10, 1991. One of the other men stabbed Snider several times when he answered the door. Hannon then cut Snider's throat.

Carter, who also lived in the apartment, tried to hide under a bed, but Hannon followed and fatally shot him six times.

Governor Rick Scott signed a death warrant in October for Patrick C. Hannon, setting the execution at Florida State Prison in Starke.
