America, one woman to death: this is the first federal sentence in 67 years
October 18, 2020
In December 2004, Montgomery murdered 23-year-old Bobby Joe Stenet by taking a baby out of a woman’s womb and then trying to pass it off as her own. Topeka Capital-Journal reported that the judge acknowledged the deviation, citing the need to assess Montgomery’s mental abilities. The sentence was handed down today at the Federal Correctional Facility in Terre Haw, Indiana.
Montgomery’s lawyers said childhood sexual abuse led to “brain damage and severe mental illness.” His stepfather denied sexual assault against him, including saying he did not have a good memory when he was presented with a statement acknowledging the physical violence. Montgomery’s mother, on the other hand, said she never denounced the man because she feared for her own life and that of her daughter.
