Missouri execution of Michael Taylor remains on track, governor says

Gov. Jay Nixon addressed the issue Tuesday, the day after an Oklahoma pharmacy agreed not to supply the drug for Taylor’s execution. But attorneys for Taylor, who is scheduled to be executed Feb. 26 for the 1989 kidnapping, rape and killing of 15-year-old Ann Harrison, said the state now has no lawful way to put him to death and filed a motion in federal court to stay the execution.
