Missouri executes convicted killer, rapist Jeffrey Ferguson

A death-row inmate convicted of kidnapping, raping and killing a 17-year-old girl in suburban St. Louis was executed early Wednesday in Missouri, marking the state’s fifth execution in five months. Jeffrey Ferguson abducted Kelli Hall as she finished her shift at a Mobil gas station in St. Charles on Feb. 9, 1989. Her naked, frozen body was found 13 days later on a farm. Investigators determined she had been raped and strangled.
