Following immense backlash, Lisa Montgomery, the only woman on death row, has been executed today following a last-minute U-turn.
And now, her final moments before receiving the lethal injection have been revealed by a witness…
This is the first time in nearly 7 decades that the U.S. government has put a female inmate to death.
Montgomery was initially meant to be executed last month, however, her lawyers had managed to have her execution postponed.
But why exactly was she given the death penalty in the first place?
Well, it’s because of the 2004 murder of Bobbie Jo Stinnett in the northwest Missouri town of Skidmore.
