BONNE TERRE, MO (KTVI) – A Missouri death row inmate scheduled to be put to death at midnight in Bonne Terre is still alive.

The state of Missouri is waiting to hear from the US Supreme Court about whether the execution of Allen Nicklasson can go forward Wednesday.

Nicklasson was convicted for the 1994 murder of a businessman in mid-Missouri.

He won a last minute stay from a federal appeals court after claiming he had in-effective lawyers.
