Lisa Montgomery, the first female federal death row prisoner in the United States, has been executed for murder.

She underwent a lethal injection at a prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, after the US Supreme Court lifted a last-minute stay of execution. The case drew attention because her attorneys argued that as a child she was mentally ill and endured physical abuse.

Since undergoing a lethal injection, Lisa Montgomery was pronounced dead at 1.31 am on Wednesday.

She died at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, Indiana, after a stay of execution was lifted by the U.S. supreme court and a request for a delay from her legal team was denied.

Since Donald Trump resumed federal executions last July following a 17-year absence, Montgomery was the 11th inmate to be executed by lethal injection. The President is an ardent advocate of the punishment of capital.

The move was criticized by Kelly Henry, Montgomery’s longtime lawyer, “The craven bloodlust of a failed administration was on full display tonight,”

In a statement posted on Twitter, Henry said. “We are here to say to every woman and girl who has been the victim of violence and degradation: You matter. Your pain matters. You are more than a victim. You are a survivor. Do not let anyone humiliate or shame you. You deserve to be loved.”

Why Lisa Montgomery Was Executed? (Full Story)

In the northwestern Missouri town of Skidmore, Montgomery murdered 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett in 2004. She used a rope to strangle Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant, and then, with a kitchen knife, cut the baby girl from the womb. With her, Montgomery took the infant and decided to pass the girl off as her own.

That girl survived. Brought up by her family, she turned 16 on the anniversary of her mother’s death last month. Some of those close to her was quoted by The New York Times as saying that Montgomery’s death was a reasonable conclusion to the case. The crime has for years haunted the Missouri culture, it said.
