Missouri Executes Man for 15-Year-Old Girl's 1989 Killing

A man who spent nearly 25 years on Missouri's death row was executed Tuesday for the kidnapping, rape and stabbing death of a 15-year-old girl.

Roderick Nunley, 50, became the sixth death row inmate to be put to death in Missouri this year.

Ann Harrison was waiting for a school bus on her driveway in March 1989, when Nunley and Michael Taylor drove by in a stolen car and made the spur-of-the-moment decision to abduct her.

Her body was found in the trunk of the abandoned car three days later.

Both men were sentenced to death in 1991. Taylor was executed last year.
