    Not all that long,TheKindExecutioner...its last execution was only last year when Martin Link,47,was executed in February 2011 for the murder of Elissa Self, and Missouri handed out no new death sentences in 2011. (see the post marked 'Listing of 2011 US Death Sentences). Also, that execution was only the second since Marlin Gray,38,was executed in October 2005. We both know that Missouri's post-Furman capital punishment heyday has passed,really.

    You claimed in the post I originally replied to, TheKindExecutioner, that 'it had been so long' (since Missouri carried out an execution) that 'you could not recall'....I just pointed out that Missouri's last execution was relatively recent.

    But compared to other states, Missouri has sure waited a long time to execute prisoners. Texas, Ohio and a few other states are chugging right along. Hoping that August 3rd, that changes. However, the naysayers say a stay is likely in that one. I guess we will see.

    Tisius was re sentenced to death 3 years ago. It will be years before he exhausts his appeals, unless he volunteers.

    IN THE MISSOURI SUPREME COURT

    STATE OF MISSOURI, )
    )
    Respondent, )
    )
    v. ) No. 79985
    )
    DAVID BARNETT, )
    )
    Appellant. )

    MOTION TO SET EXECUTION DATE

    The State of Missouri requests this Court to set an execution date for the appellant, as all appeals have been decided, no stay is in effect, and no legal impediment exists.
    The historical practice of this Court has been to issue an execution date upon the conclusion of state and federal litigation upholding a defendant’s capital murder conviction. The State has expressly requested this Court to set execution dates for the following ten individuals:

    Defendant Date Motion Filed Days Motion Pending
    Jeffrey Ferguson - April 14, 2006 - 2225
    John Middleton - June 8, 2007 - 1805
    William Rousan - June 8, 2007 - 1805
    Michael Taylor - June 8, 2007 - 1805
    John Winfield - June 8, 2007 - 1805
    Russell Bucklew - June 8, 2007 - 1805
    Earl Ringo - April 17, 2008 - 1491
    Mark Christeson - April 17, 2008 - 1491
    Joseph Franklin - June 16, 2009 - 1066
    Allen Nicklasson - January 26, 2010 - 842

    In addition to the ten defendants identified above, nine additional individuals now have final convictions for capital murder, with no stay in effect:

    Defendant Date Conviction Final
    Cecil Clayton - November 3, 2008
    Herbert Smulls - April 6, 2009
    David Barnett - October 5, 2009
    Leon Taylor - June 21, 2010
    Walter Storey - February 28, 2011
    Andre Cole - October 3, 2011
    Michael Worthington - November 28, 2011
    Paul Goodwin - February 21, 2012
    David Zink - March 26, 2012


    There is no stay of execution in effect. At this time, no legal impediments exist to the lawful execution for appellant, and for the others specified above.
    Unless this Court sets an execution date after a capital murder defendant’s legal process is exhausted, the people of Missouri are without legal remedy. Accordingly, the State of Missouri requests this Court to set an execution date.
    Respectfully submitted,

    CHRIS KOSTER
    Attorney General

    I looked up on CaseNet in Missouri. Tisius is the only one at this point the Missouri Supreme Court has set an execution date for. Says the same thing on DPIC. In the motion, the AG says that it is historical practice for the Supreme Court to set execution dates once all appeals are exhausted and there is no further legal impediments. Tisius is not in this category according to what you say (I heard it as well here in Columbia on the local news that he is not as far along in the appeals process) but they issued a date for him and not the others. Sounds to me the Missouri Supreme Court is either doing business differently or has no clue what they are doing. They need to set execution dates for the ones Koster has filed motions for. Justice needs to be more certain in Missouri and it won't be as long as the Supreme Court fails to uphold the law. As the AG said, the people of Missouri have no recourse if the Supreme Court does not set execution dates. It appears that Missouri is now able to carry out executions now. It's an untested method using propofol as the single drug in an execution and I imagine that there will be challenges to the new protocol. However, they will be without merit. Did not see it coming, but am glad that they finally updated their protocol. And to our new British participant, I have this insight. From my time spent in Columbia, I gather that this state is not going to give up the death penalty and they want executions to continue. http://www.missourinet.com/2012/05/1...al-injections/

    Tisisus was resentenced to death 3 years ago. His appeal was recently denied by the MO Supreme Court on direct appeal. The case was in their court so they issued an execution date. Once a case leaves the MO Supreme Court it is the AG's responsibility to request execution dates.

    Right on! Get the process rolling again like it was in the 90s and early 2000s when Missouri was the 4th leading state in the nation with executions.

    What were you doing in Columbia? Attending Mizzou or what? I agree the DP is here to stay in Missouri. Even if it is used less it is a very valuable tool for police and prosecutors to bargain with defendants!

    I am engaged to someone from Columbia. I still have to finish out my schooling up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I am moving down to Columbia soon while living part time in Cedar Rapids during the school year and some of the summer. I've been coming here for nearly a year. Missouri is a nice place and its people are nice. I've practically been across this state exploring. Granted, I lived 3 decades of my life in Iowa and it will always be dear to my heart. But I love Missouri. As a future resident, I would like to see the Supreme Court respect the laws as they are written. I agree, capital punishment at the very least can be used as a bargaining tool to make sure that these people do not victimize innocent people again. Most of the murder cases in Boone County come out as 2nd Degree Murder, I noted. I have only seen a few cases wind up as capital punishment cases in Missouri this year. In both, the juries came back with the recommendation they be sentenced to death.
