A prosecutor from one of Missouri’s biggest counties says he’s had enough with an unofficial moratorium on the death penalty in this state and he wants one supreme court judge to pay the price. Greene County Prosecutor Darrel Moore says it’s been a year since the Missouri Supreme Court has issued an order to execute any of Missouri’s death row inmates, despite six of them having exhausted all of their appeals. In retaliation, he’s calling on voters in the state to vote for non-retention of one of the judges that sits on the Court. That would be Judge Richard Teitelman, appointed to the Court two years ago. He says he’s not sure if Teitelman is the reason the Court has failed to act, but that doesn’t matter. Teitelman did not return calls asking for comment to the Missourinet for this story.
