Missouri Sets First Execution of 2021

Death Penalty Syringe

The Missouri Supreme Court has set an execution date of October 5, 2021, for Ernest Lee Johnson. Johnson was convicted of killing three people at a Casey's convenience store in Columbia in 1994.  Johnson is the first execution scheduled since Walter Barton in May 2020. The MCC will be advocating against Mr. Johnson's execution in keeping with Catholic Church teaching.
