Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster made the following statement after the execution of William Rousan:
"William Rousan displayed an appalling indifference to human life in the murders of Charles and Grace Lewis. He showed his true character by ordering his 16-year-old son to kill Mrs. Lewis, all so they could steal two cows, soda, a VCR, and some jewelry. Tonight he paid the price the jury recommended nearly 18 years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Charles and Grace Lewis."
