Washington: For the first time in seven decades, a woman has been sentenced to death in the United States on a court order.
According to international media reports, an American woman was sentenced to death in the murder case of a 23-year-old pregnant woman, whose name was Lisa Montgomery.
According to media reports, the execution of Montgomery was the first time since 1953 that the US government has carried out the death penalty for a female prisoner.
According to media reports, Montgomery was accused of kidnapping and later strangling Bobby Joe Stent, an eight-month-pregnant woman in Missouri in 2007.
Montgomery’s lawyer strongly remarked on the death sentence, calling it vicious, illegal, and futile.
According to media reports, President Trump reinstated the death penalty 17 years later.
