(BBC) – Lisa Montgomery – the only female inmate on federal death row in the US – has been executed for murder.
“The government stopped at nothing in its zeal to kill this damaged and delusional woman,” she said in a statement. “Lisa Montgomery’s execution was far from justice.”
She was found guilty of the crime in 2007. The next day, she was sentenced to death.
Legal challenges failed to commute sentence
Federal executions had been on pause for 17 years before President Donald Trump ordered them to resume earlier last year.
