Attorney General Josh Hawley issued the following statement this evening upon the execution of convicted triple-murderer Mark Christeson.
On January 31, 2017, Mark Christeson was executed by lethal injection for the February 1, 1998, rape and murder of Susan Brouk, murder of her 12-year-old daughter, and murder of her 9-year-old son. In 1999, a Missouri jury found Christeson guilty of three counts of capital murder based on matching DNA evidence, forensic evidence, and witness testimony. After exhaustive appeals, the court’s sentence was carried out tonight.
“It will be 19 years ago tomorrow that Susan Brouk and her two young children were brutally murdered,” Hawley said. “My heart and prayers are with the victims’ loved ones. I hope that their families find solace in the judgment carried out tonight.”
