The Supreme Court appeal for convicted killer Gary Black is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 17.
Black has been convicted twice in connection with the racially-motivated October 1998 murder of Missouri Southern student athlete Jason Johnson. Black was on death row when the Missouri Supreme Court granted his motion for a new trial. The results were the same with a second Jasper County jury finding him guilty and sentencing him to death.
More information about the case can be found in the Sept. 22, 2005, Turner Report.
