BONNE TERRE, Mo. - A Kansas City man has been executed for killing a Good Samaritan who stopped to help him and his friends after their car had broken down in 1994.

Allen Nicklasson, 41, was pronounced dead at 10:52 p.m. Wednesday at the state prison in Bonne Terre.

Nicklasson and two other men were returning to Kansas City after buying drugs in St. Louis in August 1994 when their car broke down.

Excelsior Springs businessman Richard Drummond stopped to help them.

The men forced him to drive to a secluded area where Nicklasson shot him twice in the head.

Wednesday's execution is the state's second in three weeks. Racist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin was executed Nov. 20.

It is also the second execution since Missouri began using a single execution drug, pentobarbital.
