Show-Me Execution Drug Shortage Days Before Kansas City Michael Taylor Death Sentence To Be Carried Out
KCTV5 and AP: "Missouri previously paid $8,000 in cash for each dose of the (execution) drug. The settlement will probably mean changing delicate execution procedures just a week before (Michael) Taylor is scheduled to die for raping and killing a 15-year-old Kansas City girl in 1989. Gov. Jay Nixon said Tuesday that Missouri is prepared to carry out the Feb. 26 execution but declined to elaborate."
