Lisa Montgomery cause of death – Lisa Montgomery dead : obituary – funeral – tributes
How did Lisa Montgomery die? Cause of death
Early Wednesday, the federal government executed Lisa Montgomery, a Kansas woman convicted of murdering a pregnant Missouri woman and cutting her baby from her womb.
She was the first woman put to death by the federal government in more than 60 years.
Several judges granted Montgomery a stay of execution; the first came late Monday, just hours before she was originally scheduled to be put to death. But on Tuesday, an appeals court and the U.S. Supreme Court rejected each of them one by one.
Montgomery was pronounced dead at 1:31 a.m. EST Wednesday after receiving a lethal injection at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, Indiana.
- Date of death: January 13, 2021
- Age: 52-year-old
- Cause of death: executed using lethal injection
The 52-year-old was convicted for killing 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stinnett in the northwest Missouri town of Skidmore in 2004.
She used a rope to strangle Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant, and then cut the baby girl from the womb with a kitchen knife. Montgomery took the child with her and attempted to pass the girl off as her own. She was taken into custody the next day.
That baby who Montgomery cut from Stinnett’s womb and detectives rescued just turned 16. She has never spoken publicly, and the family has asked for privacy.
