After nearly seven decades, the United States on Wednesday, executed convicted murderer Lisa Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row, after the Supreme Court cleared the last hurdle for her execution by overturning a stay, said a report. Montgomery’s execution marked the first time the US government has implemented the death sentence for a female prisoner since 1953. Lisa Montgomery was convicted in 2007 in Missouri for the kidnapping and strangling Bobbie Jo Stinnett, an eight months pregnant woman. Lisa Montgomery cut Stinnett's fetus from the womb and strangled her. Although the child survived the deadly incident, the mother didn’t.
