In December 2004 Montgomery killed 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett, removing the baby from the woman’s womb and then attempting to pass the baby off as his own.
For Montgomery’s lawyers, the various sexual abuse suffered during Montgomery’s childhood would have caused “brain damage and severe mental illness.”
“The bloodlust of a failed administration was more than visible,” Montgomery’s attorney Kelley Henry said in a statement. “Everyone who attended Lisa Montgomery’s execution should be ashamed. The government stopped at nothing, eager to kill this troubled and delusional woman,” Henry said. “Lisa Montgomery’s execution was anything but justice.”
Lisa Montgomery is the 11th inmate who has received a lethal injection in the Indiana jail since July, when President Trump, a fervent supporter of the death penalty, resumed federal executions after 17 years of de facto suspension.
A life of abuse and alcohol His case shook America. Montgomery had a tormented life behind her: abused by her stepfather and threatened by her mother with a gun after the discovery of the abuse, an alcoholic, two marriages at a young age that ended badly, the last under the blows of other abuses. And four children before a sterilization never fully accepted.
