Last-minute hearing scheduled day before Kevin Johnson’s execution in Missouri

Kevin Johnson is scheduled to be executed on Nov. 29, but a last-minute hearing may slow down the process.

Advocates, including Missouri's NAACP, say the execution should be delayed, claiming bias and racism in the case.

"If we are committed to taking a man's life, in this case Kevin Johnson, then it needs to be done fairly," Nimrod Chapel Jr., the president of Missouri's NAACP, said.

Wednesday, people who grew up with Johnson gathered at the Kirkwood Recreation Center to call for an alternative to the death penalty. Some of those supporters included Johnson's former teachers.
