(Terre Haute) The 52-year-old Kansas woman found guilty of killing an expectant mother in Skidmore, Missouri more than 16 years ago has been executed by the federal government.
Lisa Montgomery was pronounced dead at 1:31 this morning at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.
She was the first woman executed in nearly 70 years.
When asked if she had any last words, Montgomery said, “No”.
Her attorney, Kelley Henry, said, “The craven blood lust of a failed administration was on full display tonight.”
She says everyone who participated in the execution should feel shame.
Henry called her client “a damaged and delusional woman,” saying her execution was “far from justice.”
