Missouri Supreme Court sets November execution

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Missouri Supreme Court has scheduled a November execution for an inmate convicted of killing three workers at a Columbia convenience store more than two decades ago.

The state’s high court issued the execution order Tuesday for 55-year-old Ernest Lee Johnson, scheduling his death by injection for Nov. 3.

Johnson was convicted of bludgeoning 46-year-old Mary Bratcher, 57-year-old Mable Scruggs and 58-year-old Fred Jones with a hammer at a Casey’s General Store where they worked in Boone County. The killings took place in February 1994.

Johnson has appealed several times.
