For the first time in 70 years … the execution of the death sentence against an American woman

The US Department of Justice said, Friday, that it had set December 8th to implement the first death sentence issued by a federal court in nearly 70 years.

The ministry said in a statement, that Lisa Montgomery, convicted of strangling a pregnant woman in Missouri in 2004, will be executed by lethal injection at the Terrehot Correctional Facility in Indiana.

The Death Penalty Information Center says the last woman executed by federal court decision was Bonnie Heidi, who was placed in a Missouri gas chamber in 1953.
