Missouri to Execute This Man, Daughter Won’t Be Allowed to Attend
In 2007, Kevin Johnson was convicted of killing a Missouri police officer in what he described as a "fit of rage" over his brother's death. The state of Missouri is moving forward with his planned execution scheduled for Tuesday and his daughter will not be allowed to attend.
The case of Kevin Johnson was reportedly being heard in the Missouri Supreme Court on Monday as there were last attempts to have his execution stayed. Fox 2 out of St. Louis reported on what's happening just prior to Tuesday's scheduled execution.
Kevin Johnson was convicted of killing Kirkwood, Missouri, Police Officer William McEntee in 2005. Officer McEntee was a husband and father of 3 at the time of his death.
Corionsa "Khorry" Ramey is Kevin's 19-year-old daughter who had requested that the law prohibiting anyone under 21 witnessing an execution be removed so she could be with her father when he's executed. As Newsweek reported, that request was denied by courts.
KSHB out of Kansas City is reporting that Missouri Governor Mike Parsons will not stop the planned execution of Kevin Johnson and it remains on schedule for Tuesday. If no last minute judgement is made by the Missouri Supreme Court to stop the execution, it will take place at 6pm on Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
