DOJ schedules first execution of female federal inmate in 6 decades

DOJ schedules first execution of female federal inmate in 6 decades”

Miraculously, the baby survived.

On Friday, the Justice Department announced two more death row inmates would be put to death this year by the USA government, including the first woman since the 1950s.

The last woman to be executed by the U.S. government was Bonnie Heady, who was put to death in a gas chamber in Missouri in 1953, after she was involved in the kidnapping and subsequent murder of a 6-year-old boy in October of that year, according to the Death Penalty Information Centre. That December, she used an alias to contact Stinnett and express interest in buying a puppy, and the pair agreed to meet the next day. Montgomery, then 36, had told people she was pregnant and tried to pass the baby girl off as her child, though she had in fact undergone a sterilization procedure years prior.

While Montgomery is now the only woman on federal death row, 52 other women are on state-level death rows, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.

Stinnett was eight months pregnant when Montgomery began chatting to her and faking her pregnancy under the guise of "Darlene Fischer" in a chatroom called "Ratter Chatter", according to the Daily Mail. They also claimed that Montgomery had poor representation at trial. Stinnett, 23, became pregnant that spring and shared the news with online followers of her dog-breeding business, including Montgomery.

In 2007, Montgomery was convicted by a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri of federal kidnapping resulting in death.

Montgomery's execution by lethal injection is scheduled for December 8.

However, Montgomery's lawyers have urged the government to reconsider this decision as they argued that she is mentally ill due to the awful childhood abuse.

"Lisa Montgomery has long accepted full responsibility for her crime, and she will never leave prison", said Henry.

The attorney general, William Barr, announced the decision to proceed with Montgomery's execution in a statement that also detailed another execution, calling both "especially heinous murders". Reports noted the last woman to be executed by the US government was Bonnie Heady, who died by gas chamber in 1953 in Missouri.

Montgomery is now the only woman on federal death row.

This came after the White House announced a year ago that the Bureau of Prisons was switching to a new single-drug protocol for lethal injections, from a three-drug combination that the bureau last used in March 2003 on a former soldier convicted of rape and murder.
