Missouri anti-death penalty group to protest, deliver petitions opposing scheduled execution

A Missouri anti-death penalty group plans to protest Tuesday an execution schedule for next month. 

Missourians to Abolish the Death Penalty will be at the state Capitol to oppose the June 6 scheduled lethal injection of 42-year-old Michael Tisius. 

They will also deliver petitions to Governor Parson’s office asking for the governor to grant Tisius clemency. 

Tisius was convicted in the killings of two unarmed Randolph County jail workers in a plot to break out an inmate in 2000. 

He was 19 years old at the time of the murders.
