U.S. Executes Lisa Montgomery for 2004 Killing of Pregnant Woman

Lisa Montgomery, seen here following her arrest for the 2004 killing of a pregnant woman, was executed by lethal injection early Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana. Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row, was the first person executed by the federal government in 2021 and the 11th since the Trump administration resumed federal executions following a 17-year-hiatus last year.
