Woman Who Strangled Pregnant Mom to Death and Cut Out Her Baby Will be Executed

A federal appeals court reinstated the execution date for the only woman on death row in the U.S., reversing a lower court’s decision. Federal death row inmate Lisa Montgomery’s execution will take place on Jan. 12, a panel of three judges at the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a decision Friday evening. A lower court judge had vacated that execution date on Dec. 24 after Montgomery’s lawyers said they tested positive for coronavirus on their way to visit her in prison, CNN reported. U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss unlawfully vacated Montgomery’s execution date, the appellate judges ruled, according to The Associated Press.
