SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The head of the NAACP Salt Lake City branch is asking Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to commute a death sentence for a serial killer who killed two Salt Lake City joggers in 1980.

Joseph Paul Franklin is scheduled to be executed next week for the 1977 murder of a Missouri man outside a synagogue. He was also convicted in the 1980s killings of 20-year-old Ted Fields and 18-year-old David Martin, both black men.

Jeanetta Williams, president of the NAACP's Salt Lake Branch, says in a letter to Nixon that the execution costs more than keeping Franklin in prison for life.

Franklin has claimed responsibility for nearly two dozen other killings and many other crimes. He admitted shooting Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt in 1978 but was never charged.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri NAACP is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to take over the investigation of a St. Louis County police supervisor and whether he ordered officers to engage in racial profiling.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Adolphus Pruitt of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People sent a letter last week requesting the federal investigation.

A lieutenant for St. Louis County is accused of ordering officers to target and arrest blacks in and around a south St. Louis County shopping center and a Wal-Mart store. The lieutenant has denied the claim and is on paid administrative leave.
