In less than an hour... the man who kidnapped, raped and murdered 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce will be put to death at Florida State prison in Starke. Juan Carlos Chavez killed the little boy in 1995 in South Florida. Just a little while ago, the department of corrections released details on the execution. Channel 4's Elizabeth Campbell is joining us LIVE from outside the prison ..Elizabeth, are there any protesters there on either side of capital punishment? 3 3 3 All of the media is being held quite a distance away from the prison -- across the road in this open field and we were just briefed by the Dept of Corrections about an hour and a half ago here under this tent.The news conference was very brief -- but they said Chavez did request a last meal -- and he ate every bit of it. 00-0517-221:05-1:12SOT - Ribeye steak French fries mangos bananas papayas hot sauce strawberry ice cream mango juiceTRACK - That was the last meal Juan Carlos Chavez ate just hours before his scheduled execution at the Florida State Prison in Starke. Chavez has been on death row for more than 18 years now -- for the kidnapping, rape and gruesome murder of 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce. The Department of Corrections didn't have much to say to the media at 3:30 on Wednesday -- but did say his demeanor is calm -- and he hasn't had any visitors today except for his spiritual advisor.Chavez is to die by lethal injection at 6 p.m. tonight -- and Don Ryce -- the father of Jimmy -- WILL be there to watch. Ryce said in a recent interview that he will never have closure -- and that the death of Chavez is not revenge to him -- but JUSTICE -- for his son.SOT - 0118 there is not closure its not like he gets executed and everything is all good you know it would be all good if we could get jimmy backTRACK - Ryce is expected to give a statement to the media after the execution of Chavez. It's something he has waited way too long for.SOT - 0025 you dont feel happy we arent going to go out and celebrate when chavez is executed but theres a sense of relief The spokeswoman for the DOC says there WILL be another briefing after Chavez's execution at 6 -- but they couldn't give us another time. We do expect for Jimmy's father to give us a statement and IF that happens it will be at that same briefing sometime after 6 o'clock. I'll have another LIVE report from Starke tonight at 6:30.
