In spite of his lawyers’ efforts to fight execution on the basis of schizophrenia, a Missouri condemned murder imprisonment was put to death. Following the 2002 killing and alleged sexual assault of a 6-year-old, the perpetrator was executed via the use of lethal injection.
Suspect Dies by a Lethal Injection
Johnson was found guilty of committing the murder of a 6-year-old innocent kid named Cassandra “Casey” Williamson in St. Louis County. Casey’s loved ones have been seeking and striving for full justice, and the criminal will be prosecuted liable for the life he took from Casey.
The court of appeals pronounced Johnson convicted of first-degree murder, armed criminal action, kidnapping, and attempted compelled rape in 2005. He earned the capital punishment penalty.
Lawyers states the Mental Condition of Johnson
In a published report by People, Johnson was put to death after an unsuccessful attempt at the United States. Johnson’s defenders contend that his mental illness precludes him from acknowledging the link between the death sentence and the criminal act he perpetrated.
Johnson’s execution marks him the 16th prisoner executed in the United States this year, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
