JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Missouri’s Attorney General wants execution dates set for death row inmates.

Attorney General Chris Koster requested the Missouri Supreme Court set the dates because the men were not able to appeal their convictions, and there is no legal action preventing the executions.

Koster says there are ten convicted murders who’ve been waiting as many as 2,000 days for their executions to be scheduled, and another nine are in line after those.

Director of the Division of Adult Institutions, Dave Dormire, announced a new way of legally injecting inmates. This is a one-drug protocol, using propofol, instead of the previous three-drug protocol. One of the three used is no longer available.
