The mother of two girls murdered a decade ago in St. Louis County is asking Governor Bob Holden to stop the execution of one of the men convicted in the girls’ killings. Ginny Kerry has already faced criticism from some of her family members for asking Governor Holden to commute the death sentence of Antonio Richardson, who is scheduled to die early Wednesday morning at the prison in Potosi. Kerry says she has asked for leniency because Richardson was only 16 when the killings occurred and because she believes he has a diminished mental capacity. Two other men have also been sentenced to death for the deaths of Julie and Robin Kerry, who were raped and forced to jump off a bridge into the Mississippi River.More on this story and Capital Punishment in Missouri can be found at:
