BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court ALLOWS federal execution of womb raider killer Lisa Montgomery to proceed after her lawyers try to push her execution back past Biden’s inauguration

The Supreme Court has issued an order allowing the execution of the only woman on federal death row to proceed.

The order just before midnight on Tuesday allows the execution of Lisa Montgomery to proceed, lifting a stay of execution that had been in place and denying a request for a stay from Montgomery’s attorneys.

Montgomery’s execution had been scheduled for Tuesday at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was not immediately whether the execution would proceed early on Wednesday following the ruling.

The Supreme Court ruling removes the final legal barriers to the execution, which Montgomery’s attorneys had hoped to delay until the inauguration of Joe Biden, a death penalty opponent.

In 2004, Montgomery, who is from Kansas , killed expectant mother Bobbie Jo Stinnett in Missouri before cutting the baby from Stinnett’s womb and passing off the newborn as her own.

Developing story, more to follow.
