Ernest Lee Johnson Expected to be Executed Tonight

In less than six hours, Ernest Lee Johnson is expected to be put to death by lethal injection. Despite pleas for clemency from activists in Missouri, Washington D.C. politicians and even Pope Francis, the execution is still set to happen.

Missouri Governor Mike Parson refused to show mercy to Johnson, who will be executed in a matter of hours.

According to Johnson’s lawyers, he had a benign brain tumor which was surgically removed in 2008. The operation left Johnson with 20% of his brain.
