After hours and hours of delays, officials at the Prison in Bonne Terre are preparing for the execution of convicted killer Michael Taylor tonight around 7 o’clock. Larry Crawford, Director of the State Corrections Department, says it appears as though Taylor’s appeals, which are still being heard by the courts, are nearing an end. Taylor, who was initially scheduled to die by lethal injection just after midnight, filed suit claiming that method of execution constituted cruel and unusual punishment. He was sentenced to die for the 1989 rape and murder of a teenager girl in Kansas City.
