The State Supreme Court has set a February 1st execution date for Michael Taylor, who was sentenced to die for the March 1989 rape and murder of 15-year-old Ann Harrison of Kansas City. Taylor and co-defendant Roderick Nunley, who had been using drugs, stole a car. While driving, they saw their victim waiting for a school bus. The two forced the teenager into their car, drove to Nunley’s mother’s house, forced the girl into the basement, then raped her. Fearing that Harrison would identify them, the two then decided to kill her by stabbing her repeatedly. Nunley is also on death row, awaiting an execution date.
