Federal Govt Executes First Woman in Nearly 70 Years

The federal government has executed a woman on death row for the first time in nearly 70 years.

Lisa Montgomery was put to death early Wednesday morning for the murder of a pregnant woman, whose unborn child she then stole.

The 52-year-old was the only woman on federal death row in America.

Her execution by lethal injection was the eleventh since the Trump Administration resumed federal executions after a 17-year pause.
