Bucklew’s Execution Scheduled For Tonight


A scheduled execution in Missouri is moving forward despite claims from the inmate’s attorneys that he could suffer during the process due to a rare medical condition.  Russell Bucklew is scheduled to be put to death just after midnight tonight (tuesday) for the murder of a southeast Missouri man in 1996.  Up to this point, Governor Jay Nixon has indicated that he doesn’t see any reason to halt the execution.   Bucklew would be the first inmate to be put to death nationally since a botched execution last month in Oklahoma.
