St. Louis (KMOX) Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon issued a statement today saying he has refused to halt the execution of white supremacist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin, calling his crime in Missouri a cowardly and calculated shooting.

Franklin is scheduled to die Wednesday for killing 42-year-old Gerald Gordon in a sniper attack outside a suburban St. Louis synagogue in 1977.

The execution would be the first in Missouri in nearly three years.
