Attorney General's News Release

Attorney General Koster issues statement on Supreme Courtís decision on execution dates

Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster issued the following statement today on the Missouri’s Supreme Court’s decision not to set execution dates for six individuals for whom the Attorney General had requested dates:

“I am disappointed that the Missouri Supreme Court declined to order execution dates for these six individuals, whose cases have been completely through the appeals system and are ready to have execution dates set. The Court had the option of setting execution dates, which would have effectively imposed deadlines on lower court challenges to the execution protocol. The Attorney General’s Office will continue to do all we can to expedite the protocol-challenge cases.”
