The Missouri Supreme Court has set a July 11th execution date for Jerome Mallett, who was sentenced to death for the 1985 killing of Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper James Froemsdorf in Perry County. Froemsdorf had stopped Mallett for speeding on Interstate 55 in March of 1985. Mallett slipped off his handcuffs while in custody in the patrol car and shot Froemsdorf with the trooper’s own service weapon. He confessed to the killing and was convicted of first degree murder.
