Allen Nicklasson was found guilty in 1996 to first degree murder for the death of “Good Samaritan” Richard Drummond. Nicklasson was the gunman in the 1994 murder of Drummond, who had offered a ride to Nicklasson, Dennis Skillicorn and Tim DeGraffenreid after their car broke down on Interstate 70.

The Missouri Attorney General Wednesday asked the Missouri Supreme Court to set execution dates for Allen Nicklasson and Joseph Franklin.

Nicklasson was found guilty in 1996 to first degree murder for the death of “Good Samaritan” Richard Drummond. Nicklasson was the gunman in the 1994 murder of Drummond, who had offered a ride to Nicklasson, Dennis Skillicorn and Tim DeGraffenreid after their car broke down on Interstate 70.

Last May, the state executed Skillicorn for his role in the crime.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit put Missouri’s death-penality protocol on hold while reviewing facts of a case law. The ruling cleared the way for several Missouri cases to move forward, including Frankin’s and Nicklasson’s.

Franklin was convicted in 1997 for shooting and killing Gerald Gordon in the parking lot of a St. Louis area synagogue.  He was also convicted of shooting two other men in the parking lot.

“Allen Nicklasson and Gary Franklin both showed total disregard for the innocent people whose lives they took,” said Attorney General Chris Koster.
