MO Supreme Court Chief Justice on executions

State Supreme Court Chief Justice Ray Price spoke on a wide range of issues with reporters in June of this year,  including executions. He said he doesn’t plan to schedule any until legal issues are resolved by the 8th Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals. The appellate court stopped the execution of Reginald Clemons last week after his defense team raised questions about Missouri’s use of lethal injection. Legal questions surrounding lethal injection halted executions in Missouri between October of 2005 and last month when the state put Dennis Skillicorn to death. [ story includes audio]
