JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Supreme Court has scheduled a February 26th execution for a man who pleaded guilty in the 1989 abduction, rape and stabbing death of a 15-year-old Kansas City girl.

Michael Taylor and Roderick Nunley were charged with kidnapping Ann Harrison as she waited for a school bus near her home. She was raped, stabbed and left bleeding to death in the trunk of a car.

The high court set Taylor's execution date on Friday.

Taylor's lawyer said the scheduling was premature in light of ongoing lawsuits against Missouri's execution procedures. The state switched to a one-drug lethal injection method since drug companies stopped selling the traditional three-drug mixture for use in executions.

Nunley was scheduled to be executed in 2010, but was granted a stay.

UNION, Mo. (AP) - The eastern Missouri publisher of an anti-government newsletter who was shot by state troopers after pulling a gun has been sentenced to a 30-year prison term by a judge he likened to a terrorist.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 47-year-old Jeffrey Weinhaus called the judge who sentenced him Monday in Franklin County "a black-robed terrorist, an enemy combatant no different than Osama bin Laden."

A jury convicted Weinhaus last month of charges of assaulting a law enforcement officer, armed criminal action and illegal morphine possession, as well as a marijuana misdemeanor.

Authorities say Weinhaus pulled a gun on Missouri state troopers serving him with an arrest warrant when the officers shot him in in the chest, neck and head.

Weinhaus's attorney says his client plans to appeal.

Convicted murderer to get new sentence

A convicted murderer who is spending life in prison without parole, will be resentenced.

Ledale Nathan was 16-years-old when he was tried as an adult for the 2009 murder of Gina Stallis. Nathan was convicted on 26 charges including first-degree murder. Nathan's lawyers filed an appeal saying the state did not prove first-degree murder. The appeal also said his age should have factored into the sentencing.

The State Supreme Court is upholding the convictions but sending the case back to lower courts for resentencing. The high court says the punishment is a violation of Nathan's Eighth Amendment rights.
