Judge halts federal execution of woman who killed pregnant mother, cut out her baby
Her lawyers have contracted COVID-19
AU.S. district judge has “briefly” stayed the execution of a notorious killer who murdered a pregnant mother and then cut her baby out of her body, temporarily halting what is anticipated to be the first federal execution of a woman in nearly seven decades.
Lisa Montgomery in 2004 strangled Skidmore, Missouri resident Bobbie Jo Stinnett to death, then cut open Stinnett’s body and removed her baby before fleeing with it.
The killer was eventually apprehended and the baby safely returned to its father. Montgomery was subsequently sentenced to death; the federal government in October set her date of execution for Dec. 8 of this year.

I am against the Death Penalty because the Church says we should be, generally speaking but I also point out the heinousness of the crime involved in most or all of these cases.
There was a previous thread on this from years ago; but I accidentally closed the webpage.
