Gov. Nixon statement regarding scheduled execution of Allen Nicklasson

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Gov. Jay Nixon today issued the following statement regarding the scheduled execution of Allen Nicklasson:

“As Governor, my interest is in making sure justice is served and public health is protected. That is why, in light of the issues that have been raised surrounding the use of propofol in executions, I have directed the Department of Corrections that the execution of Allen Nicklasson, as set for October 23, will not proceed. I have further directed the Department to modify the State of Missouri’s Execution Protocol to include a different form of lethal injection. The Attorney General will immediately request a new execution date for Allen Nicklasson from the Missouri Supreme Court.”
