BONNE DE TERRE, Mo–A new execution date has been set for a Vernon County man who killed a woman and her two children back in 1998.
Mark Christeson was sentenced to death after killing Susan Brouk and her nine and 12-year old children near their home in Vichy.
He was originally scheduled to be executed in October 2014, but the order was blocked by the Missouri Supreme Court less than three hours before it happened due to an error in an appeals petition.
The court overturned that appeal.
Christeson is now scheduled to be executed on January 31st, 2017.
