Johnny Mack Skeeto Calhoun

TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction and sentence of a Holmes Vounty man who burned a woman alive.

Johnny Mack Skeeto Calhoun was sentenced to death, plus 100-years, for the brutal murder of Mia Brown.

Calhoun kidnapped the Esto store clerk in December 2010. He put brown in the trunk of her car alive, then drove to Hartford, Alabama where he set the car on fire.

All death penalty cases in Florida are automatically appealed. After the sentencing in May 2012, State Attorney Glen Hess said he was confident the case would stand up.
