Missouri’s execution chamber, in which state imposed death sentences are carried out, is being moved from the Potosi Prison to the newer prison at Bonne Terre. Since the reinstatement of capital punishment in Missouri, all but one execution has been conducted at the prison in Potosi. The lone exception was held at the now closed Jefferson City Penitentiary. Department of Corrections Spokesman John Fougere says Bonne Terre, which opened in 2003, was built to house executions. He adds the move will be made in time for the next scheduled execution on April 27th.
