This case attracted attention because her lawyers argued she was mentally ill and had suffered serious abuse as a child.
The 52-year-old strangled a pregnant woman before cutting out and kidnapping her baby in Missouri in 2004. Her victim, 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett bled to death.
Lisa Montgomery is the first female federal inmate to face execution by the US government in 67 years.
According to a witness, a woman standing next to Montgomery during the execution process removed the inmate’s face mask and asked if she had any last words. Montgomery responded ‘’no’’ and said nothing else.
Montgomery’s lawyer, Kelly Henry, said after the death announcement, that whoever participated in this execution ‘’should feel shame.’’
‘’The government stopped at nothing in its zeal to kill this damaged and delusional woman. Lisa Montgomery’s execution was far from justice,’’ Kelly said in a statement.
They postponed her execution twice, first by Covid-19 because it had to happen last year. Then by a judge – until a Supreme Court ruling cleared the way for it to take place in the early hours of Wednesday.
