Missouri Senator proposes new rules for executions

Tuesday, 28 January 2014 13:48 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - As Missouri prepares to execute its third inmate in three months, a state senator wants to change the state's execution process.
 
Senate Democratic Leader Jolie Justus introduced legislation Tuesday that would create an 11-member commission responsible for setting the state's execution procedure. She says ongoing lawsuits and secrecy about the state's current lethal injection method should drive a change in protocol.
 
Missouri had used a three-drug cocktail for executions, but it threw out the process after it could no longer obtain the drugs. The state ultimately switched to a form of pentobarbital made by a compounding pharmacy, though it refuses to reveal its origins.
 
Missouri is scheduled to execute Herbert Smullsat 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. Smulls was convicted of killing a St. Louis County jeweler in 1991.
 

St. Louis City offering flu shots for uninsured

Tuesday, 28 January 2014 13:36 Published in Local News

The St. Louis Department of Health is stepping up to offer flu shots for some Medicare recipients.

 

The city is providing the shots for four days at 1520 Market Street to anyone who uses Medicare Part B. The shots are available from 9 AM to noon this Thursday and Friday, and again on Monday and Wednesday.

 

More information available by calling the Department of Health at (314)-657-1568.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - With convicted killer Herbert Smulls' execution just hours away, his lawyer says she's used open records requests and publicly available documents to determine the name of the compounding pharmacy she believes manufactures Missouri's lethal injection drug.
 
Smulls is scheduled to die at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday. The state plans to use pentobarbital, but has refused to say where the drug is made. Attorney Cheryl Pilate has said that makes it impossible for Smulls' advocates to know whether it could cause pain and suffering.
 
Pilate told The Associated Press on Tuesday that her research indicates the drug is made by The Apothecary Shoppe, based in Tulsa, Okla. She says an Oklahoma City-based lab tested the drug.
 
Messages seeking comment from both companies, and the Missouri Department of Corrections, were not immediately returned.
