Former Illini takes bobsled bronze

Wednesday, 19 February 2014 16:37 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Former Illini track and field athlete Aja Evans has won a bronze medal in the two-man bobsled at the Sochi Olympics.
Evans is from Chicago. She was paired with Jamie Greubel of Newtown, Pa. They grabbed the bronze on Wednesday.
 
The win gives the U.S. two Olympic women's bobsled medal winners for the first time. The team of Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams won the silver. Canada took the gold.
 
Evans and Greubel won with a time of 3 minutes, 51.61 seconds.
 
The University of Illinois said in a Wednesday release that Evans was a five-time All-American and three-time Big Ten shot put champions at Illinois from 2007 to 2010. Evans switched to bobsledding in March 2012.

Missouri officials mum on death drug

Wednesday, 19 February 2014 16:23 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The head of the Missouri Corrections Department is remaining silent on whether the state has enough of its execution drug to carry out next week's scheduled lethal injection.
 
Director George Lombardi told the Senate Appropriations Committee Wednesday that he couldn't comment on the state's drug supply. But he did say the state cannot stockpile pentobarbital produced by a compounding pharmacy because of its shelf life.
 
The Oklahoma-based Apothecary Shoppe agreed this week to not supply the drug to Missouri for its next execution.
 Michael Taylor is scheduled to die Feb. 26 for the abduction, rape and murder of a 15-year-old Kansas City girl. Gov. Jay Nixon has said the department is prepared to carry out the execution.
 
Republicans on the Senate committee said it's important to impose the death penalty.
 

Change is sought regarding Missouri executions

Wednesday, 19 February 2014 16:19 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri state senator wants to give the Corrections Department flexibility on how it carries out executions.
Republican Sen. Kurt Schaefer introduced legislation Wednesday that would allow the department to execute inmates by any lawful means. Current law permits executions only by lethal gas or chemicals.
 
Schaefer, of Columbia, says legal questions over Missouri's current use of pentobarbital shouldn't be used to block capital punishment in the state. He says his bill would give the department the necessary flexibility to carry out death sentences.
 
Missouri's next scheduled execution is Feb. 26, but its current drug supplier has said it will no longer sell compounded pentobarbital for use in lethal injections. State officials won't say whether the state has enough of the drug to proceed with next week's execution.
