Woman who killed pregnant mother, cut her baby out scheduled to be executed



A woman who killed a pregnant woman and stole the unborn baby by cutting it from the victim’s womb is scheduled to become the first female executed by the federal government in 70 years, the Justice Department announced Friday.

Lisa Montgomery, who was found guilty of the gruesome December 2004 crime, is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Dec. 8 at US Penitentiary Terre Haute, Indiana, the DOJ said.

Montgomery strangled Bobbie Jo Stinnett until she lost consciousness, sliced open her body with a kitchen knife and stole the baby, passing it off as her own, the feds said.

The victim briefly regained consciousness when Montgomery first cut into her, briefly putting up a fight, the feds said, before Montgomery succeeded in fatally strangling her.

Montgomery confessed to murdering Stinnett and abducting her child, the feds said.

She was found guilty in October 2007 of federal kidnapping resulting in death.

The last woman to be executed by the federal government was Bonnie Heady. She was put to death in a gas chamber in Missouri in 1953, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
