Death penalty upheld for man who shot two Randolph County Jail deputies

A man’s death penalty conviction was upheld on Tuesday after an appeal was issued.

Michael Tisius was charged in 2000 for shooting and killing two deputies at the Randolph County Jail. Tisius shot the deputies to help his cell mate try and escape from the jail.

The opinion was issued after the Missouri Supreme Court concluded that no error was made in the judgment of Tisius’ case.
