Federal execution of Lisa Montgomery stayed

Federal execution of Lisa Montgomery stayed

"As discussed elsewhere in this order, Ms. Montgomery has been diagnosed with physical brain impairments and multiple mental illnesses, and three experts are of the opinion that, based on conduct and symptoms reported to them by counsel, Ms. Montgomery's perception of reality is now distorted and impaired", he said.

Lisa Montgomery was found guilty of murdering Bobbie-Jo Stinnett.

In 2020, the US government executed 10 people and it was for the first time ever that the federal government conducted more executions than all USA states combined, according to a database compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center.

She was to be the first women to be executed by the United States government since 1953. Montgomery responded "no", and said nothing else. She was pronounced dead a minute later.

On Tuesday afternoon a judge with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit granted another stay, throwing Montgomery's execution further, into question.

It came after hours of legal wrangling before the Supreme Court cleared the way for the execution.

In his ruling on a stay, US District Judge James Patrick Hanlon in Terre Haute cited defence experts who alleged Montgomery suffered from depression, borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. She has been sexually abused her whole life", Mattingly explained, "Please commute this to life.

"I think she's very competent and I would like her to get the needle", Baumli said. That opinion is supported by 41 current and former lawyers as well as human rights groups like the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

In 2004, Montgomery strangled 23-year-old Barbara Jo Stinnett to death, then sliced her open and stole her unborn child.

She used a rope to strangle Ms Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant, and then cut the baby girl from the womb with a kitchen knife. A search of her computer showed she used it to research cesareans and order a birthing kit. She hasn't been able to continue that hobby or read since her glasses were taken away from her out of concern she could kill herself.

In 2007, she was convicted of kidnapping resulting in death and handed a death sentence. She is represented in part by Kelley Henry, a familiar face in local courts, representing many death row inmates here.

Her lawyers have asked President Donald Trump to grant clemency, saying Montgomery committed her crime after a lifetime of being abused and raped. Montgomery was the first of the final three federal inmates scheduled to die before next week's inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, who is expected to discontinue federal executions.

As the only woman on federal death row, Montgomery had been held in a federal prison in Texas and was brought to Terre Haute on Monday night.

Lisa Montgomery faced execution Tuesday in IN, just eight days before President-elect Biden, an opponent of the federal death penalty, takes office, reported AP. Since receiving her execution date, she'd been placed on suicide watch in an isolated cell. "Mrs Montgomery is mentally deteriorating and we are seeking an opportunity to prove her incompetence", Henry said in a statement.

The petition is an appeal of an earlier case out of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, where the court ruled that the federal government acted against regulation when it scheduled Montgomery's execution for January 12 despite an outstanding court order staying her execution.
