Terre Haute, Indiana (AP)-The US government has executed a female prisoner for the first time in almost 70 years. Authorities strangled a pregnant woman in Missouri and executed a Kansas woman who had her baby cut from her womb.

Lisa Montgomery was sentenced to death Wednesday at 1:31 am after receiving a fatal injection in a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Montgomery killed 23-year-old Bobby Jostinet in Skidmore, Missouri. She was the eleventh convict on death row since July, when President Donald Trump resumed the federal death penalty after not executing the death penalty for 17 years. She is a female federal prisoner who was executed for the first time in 67 years.

President-elect Joe Biden, an opponent of the death penalty, will swear next week. A federal judge on Tuesday suspended two other executions scheduled for this week after prisoners tested positive for COVID-19.
