Lisa Montgomery wanted a baby so badly that she befriended a woman only to strangle and cut the baby from her. She kept the baby girl for several days and tried to pass her off as her own before being apprehended.
Is this a terrible tragedy? Hell yes, of course.
Should Lisa Montgomery be punished? Absolutely.
Does she belong on death row? No, and Ill tell you why.
Lisa Montgomery


Lisa was diagnosed with  pseudocyesis- a condition wherein a woman's body exhibits signs of pregnancy to the point that she becomes convinced she is pregnant. From Wikipedia:
Lisa's Victim- Bobbie Jo Stinnett
VS Ramachandran, the well known neuroscientist, appeared as an expert for the defense and testified that Montgomery suffered from severe pseudocyesis delusion. According to Dr. Ramachandran, Montgomery's childhood sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder predisposed her to pseudocyesis. 

This alone is reason enough to understand why she exhibits violent behavior and why it is toward a pregnant female and why she took the baby.

I don't know Lisa personally. I do talk to Angela Johnson however and the two of them are housed together as our nations only two female federal death row inmates. Angie talks a lot of how much she cares for Lisa and was heartbroken when her friend had to return to Missouri for appeals.

Dianne Fanning, author of the Casey Anthony page turner Mommy's Little Girl chronicled the Lisa Montgomery case in exquisite detail with Baby be Mine. The whole story is a fascinating look at a little known illness and the federal governments acceptance of a mentally ill woman for execution.

  1. I disagree. If she has this mental disorder where she thought she was pregnant she wouldn't have had to stalk her victim, plot her murder, steal her baby, etc. This was methodical. She researched how to do the c section, she formulated the strategy for claiming to have delivered quickly in a birth center, and tricked her husband and family. She's not mentally ill...she's a calculated criminal. I can't wait until she's dead.

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Morgan Smith Florida

Morgan Smith. Wow. Just, wow. She came from a family of mental illnesses with a father who committed suicide. She had spent her life on psychotropic drugs for severe depression and borderline personality disorder, the same thing that causes multiple personalities. She also became a sex slave for Daryl Smith in a long-term relationship that ended with a child.

Their relationship was everything the weird, late night, HBO documentaries say those things are. She met him after work and groveled at his feet in a leather outfit complete with chain leash and dog collar. She licked his boots clean and said thank you after he spanked her ass. She was a complete, total submissive, and seemed to enjoy being that way. She even changed her last name to his legally, even though he would not marry her. He had told her many times; no matter what she did, she would never be his wife.

Eventually he found another woman he was interested in, Andrea Stranko, and left Morgan and their
daughter. It devasta…

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
