Lisa Montgomery was executed in Indiana after the Supreme Court dismissed the last appeal. She is the first woman to be executed in the United States after a federal conviction since 1953.

LIsa Montgomery was executed at 1:31 am local time in Terre Haute Federal Prison, Indiana. The American news channel CNN reports. The execution was initially suspended. A federal court in Indiana based the decision on Monday with mental disorders of the fifty-two-year-old. Montgomery is not in a position to understand the planned execution as a result of her act. However, an appeals court overturned the decision a day later. The Supreme Court in Washington finally approved the authorities on Wednesday.

Montgomery strangled a pregnant dog breeder in Missouri in December 2004 and cut an eight-month-old fetus from her stomach. One day after the crime, she was arrested at her home in Skidmore, about 250 kilometers from the scene. She had the kidnapped baby who survived the gruesome act with her. Before she confessed, she told the police and her husband that she gave birth to the girl herself. She was sentenced to death in 2007.

Montgomery is the first woman to be executed in the United States following a federal conviction in nearly 70 years. After 17 years, President Donald Trump resumed federal executions last summer. The Republican government has since executed ten people sentenced to death. He ignored a pardon from Montgomery’s lawyers.

In addition to Montgomery, Terre Haute Federal Prison is also slated for executions of the murderers Cory Johnson and Dustin John Higgs this week. The lawyers for the two death row inmates have also requested a suspension.

MOSCOW, January 2 – RIA Novosti. Lisa Montgomery was convicted of the particularly brutal murder of a pregnant woman in 2004, according to NBC News, according to a US federal appeals court’s decision to defer the first federal death sentence for a woman in 70 years. Earlier it was planned that the sentence would be carried out on December 8 in Indiana by lethal injection. The reason for the postponement was that her lawyers were infected with the coronavirus and they needed time to recover and prepare a petition for commutation of the sentence. Then the district court postponed the execution to January 12, but now this decision has been canceled and the execution may take place earlier, the TV channel notes.

Biden is ahead – Trump still has opportunities

The tension in the race for the White House rises: After important victories in Michigan and Wisconsin, Joe Biden is almost there. The results are still pending in six states. The current results.

Photo series with 30 pictures

Democrat Joe Biden hits the home stretch as the favorite, while the US has the final votes in the presidential election. After winning key states, the challenger seems only steps away from the White House. Incumbent Donald Trump, however, claimed the victory for himself and sent his lawyers off with lawsuits in several states. Read more about this here.

Depending on the calculation, Biden is missing 6 or 17 votes

Biden is still missing 17 votes, Trump 57. According to calculations by the AP news agency and the TV channel Fox News, his victory in the state Arizona see as certain, Biden now even has 264 of the 270 votes required for a victory in the presidential election. According to this, the former Vice President Barack Obama would only have to choose one state to win. However, according to Edison Research, Trump is currently catching up in Arizona. After counting 86 percent of the votes, the incumbent president now comes to 48.1 percent and Biden to 50.5 percent. Previously it was 47.9 to 50.7 percent.

The race is also still considered open in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada und Alaska. In Nevada, which brings six electoral votes, Biden was able to extend his lead over Trump. He is now a percentage point, or about 11,500 votes, ahead of Trump. Previously the difference was only about 8,000 votes.

In North Carolina After counting 95 percent of the votes, Trump leads by 1.4 percentage points. In Alaska just under half of all votes have been counted, but the state will most likely go to Trump.

Trump’s lead in Georgia and Pennsylvania is shrinking

In Georgia however, Biden almost caught up with Trump. The difference in the counted votes between the two candidates is only around 0.2 percentage points. There are 16 voters in the state.

Also in Pennsylvania Trump’s lead is shrinking. After the votes cast on election day were counted there, the majority of which benefited Trump, now the postal votes follow. Democratic supporters were more inclined to mail their ballots than Republicans amid the coronavirus pandemic. Biden is currently 48.8 percent, he still lacks a good 90,500 votes for Trump with 50 percent. Since there were delays in the US postal service, postal ballot papers that arrive by Friday afternoon are also said to be valid in Pennsylvania.

It is therefore foreseeable that it may take some time before there is clarity about the outcome of the election.

These are the current results of the US presidential election:

Biden: The result is clear

Biden saw himself in front of Trump on Wednesday. “Now, after a long night of counting, it is clear that we are winning enough states to get the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the presidency,” he said in Wilmington, Delaware.

According to matching media reports Biden won the contested states of Michigan and Wisconsin against Trump. The Republican had declared himself the winner early on Wednesday election night and announced that he would bring his claim to the US Supreme Court.

Trump continues to oppose postal voting

Since the election, Trump has posted several tweets in which he railed about the vote count. His lead, which was still in place on Tuesday evening, “magically disappeared” in one state after another, he wrote about. You can read a fact check on his statements here.

Overall, Trump did significantly better in the election than expected according to surveys. The three-year-old Biden, however, missed the clear victory hoped for by the Democrats. Before the election, the statistics portal “FiveThirtyEight” had only calculated a probability of around ten percent for a victory for Trump.
