ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -  An inmate scheduled to be put to death next week is asking the Missouri Supreme Court to stop his execution.  John Winfield was convicted of killing two women in St. Louis County in 1996.  His attorneys say it's unconstitutional to execute him with, "An unregulated compounded drug from an undisclosed supplier."

Winfield would be the seventh person put to death in Missouri since November.

    If he is worried about this drug, which has an excellent track record, then give him the choice of a firing squad, every one knows where the ammunition is manufactured.

    How come he didn’t worry about anything when he murdered two women and permantly blinded his ex-girlfriend, but I guess his so call death penalty attornies think that was okey. Where is the logic here. We have executed 6 murderers and everyone has been pronounced dead in 9 minutes, wouldn’t every like to have some a quick and humane death.
