      Court sets killer's execution date

      The Missouri Supreme Court on Friday set an execution date of March 26 for Jeffrey Ferguson, convicted of kidnapping a 17-year-old girl in St. Charles, then raping and killing her.

      Missouri has executed three men since November. A fourth execution is set for Wednesday. Michael Taylor is scheduled to die by injection for raping and killing a 15-year-old Kansas City girl in 1989.

      Ferguson's death sentence also stems from a 1989 crime. He was convicted of abducting Kelli Hall from the service station where she worked. Her body was found about two weeks later on a farm. An autopsy showed she had been raped before she was strangled.
