US GOV’T CARRIES OUT FIRST EXECUTION OF FEMALE INMATE SINCE 1953

Written by on January 13, 2021

A KANSAS WOMAN WAS EXECUTED FOR STRANGLING AN EXPECTANT MOTHER AND CUTTING THE BABY FROM HER WOMB, THE FIRST TIME IN NEARLY 70 YEARS THAT THE US GOVERNMENT HAS PUT TO DEATH A FEMALE INMATE.

LISA MONTGOMERY, 52, WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD AT 1:31AM (06:31 GMT) ON WEDNESDAY AFTER RECEIVING A LETHAL INJECTION OF PENTOBARBITAL, A POWERFUL BARBITURATE, AT A FEDERAL PRISON COMPLEX IN TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA.

SHE WAS THE 11TH PRISONER TO RECEIVE A LETHAL INJECTION THERE SINCE JULY WHEN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, AN ARDENT SUPPORTER OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, RESUMED FEDERAL EXECUTIONS FOLLOWING 17 YEARS WITHOUT ONE.
