A Missouri death row inmate scheduled to be put to death just after midnight tonight has been granted a say of execution. John Middleton was scheduled to die for a 1995 murder. Middleton was a meth dealer in northern Missouri and was convicted for killing three people out of fear they would snitch to police. He was sentenced to death for the third murder. A witness came forward in February suggesting that two other men were the real killers. U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry ruled that there was enough questions about Middleton’s sanity that a hearing should determine if he is fit to be executed since the U.S. Constitution prohibits executing the mentally ill.
