It’s been 23 years, this month, since two Randolph County jailers were murdered, and Missourians are waiting to see whether the man responsible will be executed Tuesday night as scheduled. Former Regional Radio News Director Mike Lear reports…..
Tisius is in an isolation cell in the prison at Bonne Terre with his execution scheduled for 6:00 Tuesday night. Saturday, a federal court lifted a stay based on the argument that a member of the jury that sentenced him to death was illiterate, which is against Missouri law. That decision is being appealed and could result in another stay.
