Judge pronounced his dead at 9:09 p.m. CDT. He was on a death row for about 25 years. This is the sixth death row inmate this year in Missouri and twenty nationwide.

It is reported during the execution the breathing of Nunley became labored for few seconds and his mouth was briefly opened before his body became still.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said even though Nunley admitted his guilt to the court, but it took 25 long years to execute him.

Nunley and his friend Michael Taylor abducted the small girl Ann Harrison when she was waiting for a school bus, 20 years away from the school gate. The two were driving in a stolen car. After three days of the disappearance of the girl her body was found in a trunk.

Court sentenced death to both the black men in 1991 and Taylor was executed in 2014.

A clemency request for Nunley was denied on Tuesday by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon. It was filed by death penalty opponents.

Earlier, several times the US Supreme Court denied several appeals including death penalty is a cruel and unusual punishment.

Retired Kansas City detective Pete Edlund said the punishment is not unusual, but the 25 years time taken to execute was unusual. He should have put to death long ago. However, even though late, his death will bring some peace to the family of the small white girl.
