Corbett Signs Execution Warrant for
Man Who Killed Clearfield Co. Toddler

Gov. Tom Corbett has signed a death warrant ordering a man be executed for the rape and murder of a 2-year-old Clearfield County girl in 1988.

55-year-old Stephen Rex Edmiston has maintained his innocence since he was convicted in 1989 in the abduction of Bobbi Jo Matthew from her home.

The death warrant sets the execution for April 16, but more appeals are likely and that would push the date back.
