The U.S. government executes the death penalty on a female prisoner for the first time in nearly 70 years

Original title: For the first time in 70 years!The US government executed a female prisoner

Montgomery (Associated Press), January 13th. According to the Associated Press report on the 13th, the US government executed a female prisoner on that day, marking the first execution of a female prisoner since 1953.

The prisoner named Lisa Montgomery, from Kansas, was previously sentenced to death for strangling a pregnant woman who was expecting to give birth and taking out her child by caesarean section. Montgomery, 52, was pronounced dead at 1:31 a.m. local time on the 13th after receiving a lethal injection in Indiana. According to the report, the staff took off Montgomery’s mask before execution and asked him what his last words were. But the latter just replied: “No.”

Montgomery’s lawyers accused the government in a statement, saying that her execution did not represent justice and that “anyone involved in the death penalty should be ashamed.” According to statistics, this is the 11th prisoner who has received the death penalty by lethal injection since the Trump administration resumed the death penalty in July 2020. Montgomery was one of the three prisoners who finally received the death penalty before the new government came to power. The US media said that Bi was expected to suspend the federal death penalty after he took office. (Zhao Jianxing, Overseas Network)
