Missouri Man Faces Execution for Raping, Killing 15-Year-Old.

An inmate scheduled to be executed Tuesday for killing a 15-year-old Missouri girl has asked the U.S. Nunley and a co-defendant were accused of kidnapping Ann Harrison as she waited for a school bus in Kansas City, then raping and killing the girl in 1989. But retired Kansas City detective Pete Edlund said the only thing cruel and unusual is how long Nunley and his co-defendant Michael Taylor, who was executed last year, remained on death row. “They just take forever to do the deed,” Edlund told The Associated Press in an interview this week. “The delay in executing these two is just nuts because it didn’t have anything to do with their guilt.

It was legal mumbo jumbo nonsense.” In a new appeal filed Monday, Herndon challenged the state’s refusal to disclose who makes its execution drug or how it is tested. Jay Nixon is reviewing a clemency petition from an anti-death penalty group that alleges racial bias played a role in the case because a prosecutor refused a plea deal that would have given Nunley life in prison without parole.

At one point, a police officer from neighboring Lee’s Summit chased the car but was called off by a supervisor when the stolen car crossed into Kansas City.
