MO Supreme Court Denies Requests to Stop Tuesday Execution of Convicted Police Killer

(MISSOURINET) –  The Missouri Supreme Court has denied requests to block the Tuesday execution of a man convicted of killing a police officer. Kevin Johnson, who is black, was sentenced to death for the 2005 killing of Kirkwood police sergeant Bill McEntee (MECK-en-tee), who was white. During Monday’s hearing, a special prosecutor said Johnson’s 2007 sentencing involved racial bias. Assistant Attorney General Andrew Crane said Johnson’s execution should go forward….

Johnson could be executed as early as 6 p.m. Tuesday, if another court does not step in.
