Judge puts death row inmate’s execution on hold

(KTRS) – The planned execution of a Missouri death row inmate is on hold.

A Federal judge ruled late yesterday that Andre Cole was not competent to be executed. Cole’s attorneys say the inmate hears voices in his head. The Missouri Attorney General’s Office appealed Monday’s decision and regardless of the decision, it will likely be appealed to the US Supreme Court.

Andre Cole is scheduled for execution at 6 p.m. Tuesday for fatally stabbing a man in 1998 in a fit of anger over having to pay child support.
