Tuesday, February 3, The state's evidence at the guilt and innocence phase established that Tucker murdered Jerry Lynn Dean during the commission of the offense of burglary of a habitation. The evidence revealed the following:. Tucker was "pretty well on her way" intoxicated due to the use of alcohol and drugs , but could walk, talk, and carry on a conversation. Tucker told accomplice Leibrant she wanted to go over to Jerry Lynn Dean's apartment to collect some money and intimidate him a little. They talked about taking some things if Dean wouldn't pay the money, specifically a motorcycle, a TV, and a stereo. Tucker got the keys to the apartment from Dean's wife, Shawn, secretly taking them but convincing Shawn that they were lost. Tucker had also talked about "offing" Dean about two weeks before the offense. Tucker expressed that every time she struck Dean she received sexual gratification. There was a girl hiding under some sheets in the bedroom, and because the lights were on and Dean had said Tucker's name several times, Tucker and Garrett decided to kill her as well. Leibrant then left the scene and walked for about an hour before he called Ronnie Burrell to come pick him up. Both Garrett and Tucker were angry with him for leaving the scene, but to make amends he helped Garrett dispose of Dean's El Camino later that evening. Leibrant was not offered any deals for his accomplice testimony except that the judge hearing his cases would be made aware of his cooperation. The morning after the incident, Tucker showed up at the home of Douglas McAndrew Garrett, hereinafter referred to as Doug , Garrett's brother, at approximately 6: After unloading a motorcycle frame from the back of the El Camino, she said, "We offed Jerry Dean last night. She handed him Dean's wallet which Doug immediately burned in an ashtray. Although Doug insisted that they remove the motorcycle parts from his garage at that time, he later allowed his brother to store some of the parts with him. He disposed of the parts before going to the police, but led the police to them at a later date. Doug subsequently called J. Mosier, a family friend who was a detective in the homicide division, and gave him Leibrant's name. Doug later assisted the police in obtaining a taped conversation of Tucker and Garrett discussing the murders. The bodies were discovered by a co-worker of Dean's, Gregory Scott Traver, the morning of June 13 after Dean did not arrive to drive Traver to work. Traver found Dean's body in the spare bedroom along with the body of a girl with a pickax "in her heart. On the evening of the June 13, Tucker and Garrett were watching television when the news came on with a story about the murders. Tucker and Garrett laughed and giggled and said they were famous. Leibrant was called into the house so he could watch the news report as well. Examination of the bodies revealed that Dean had been struck in the head and had several stab wounds. There were a total of 28 stab wounds, 20 of which could have been fatal, along with the fatal skull fracture. Dean's female companion, Deborah Ruth Thorton, also died from multiple stab wounds to the chest and stab wounds and blunt trauma to the back. A pickax like the one recovered at the scene could have caused the wounds that killed both of the decedents.

After Tucker entered a plea of not guilty in the th District Court, the jury found her guilty of capital murder on April 19, On April 25, after a separate hearing on the issue of punishment, the jury answered affirmatively the special issues submitted pursuant to the former provisions of Article In accordance with state law, the trial court sentenced Tucker to death by lethal injection.

On December 18, , the convicting court scheduled Tucker's execution for February 3, On January 20, , Tucker filed a successive state writ application and request for stay of execution in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Supreme Court, which is still pending. However, the state did present evidence at the punishment phase concerning Tucker's prior violent acts, which included a previous altercation with Dean during which she punched him in the face while he had glasses on, forcing him to go to the hospital to have glass removed from his eye. Tucker also admitted a history of drug use and prostitution. Houston Chronicle. February 3, Apologizing to the family members of her victims, Tucker smiled and told her friends and relatives, "I love all of you very much. I'm going to be face to face with Jesus now. Tucker, who confessed her guilt in the slayings of a man and woman in Houston 15 years ago, was pronounced dead at 6: She was the first woman to be executed in Texas since and only the second nationally since She also was the first Texas prisoner to be executed this year. Tucker went to her death in a frenzy of media coverage, with an estimated reporters from around the world posted outside the state prison system's Walls Unit in downtown Huntsville. A few hundred capital punishment abolitionists stood vigil in protest while death penalty advocates sparred verbally with them. It was in the final months leading up to her death that Tucker achieved the fame she once told her ex-husband was her destiny. Griffith, who was married to Tucker for six years, did not attend her execution. Although Tucker had pleaded to Gov. George W. Bush and the state Board of Pardons and Paroles for mercy, she had also maintained that her gender should not be an issue in deciding clemency. She said she had become a born-again Christian shortly after her arrest in Among those witnessing her death was Richard "Tony" Thornton, the husband of victim Deborah Thornton, who had been angrily outspoken about his desire to see Tucker executed. State prison officials said they were not contacted by any relatives of Jerry Lynn Dean, Tucker's other victim, so no witnesses representing his family were present. She's all yours," Thornton said as Tucker's injection began. Sitting in a wheelchair, the disabled Thornton was at eye level with Tucker, lying strapped to the gurney. At one point, Thornton referred to Tucker's current husband, a prison minister and car dealer, and remarked, "So now Dana Brown gets to write his book. Brown, who married Tucker three years ago, said he had not decided where she will be buried. Her body was taken to an undisclosed funeral home. Even though she cried out for forgiveness, God gave her just what she needed. That was love. Who are we to say when a person is past redemption? And that's what we're saying when we kill people, human beings. The final roadblocks to Tucker's execution were cleared about 6: His decision was not unexpected. She was convicted and sentenced by a jury of her peers," Bush said, reading a statement at the Capitol. The courts, including the United States Supreme Court, have reviewed the legal issues in this case, and therefore, I will not grant a day delay. Supreme Court rejected three challenges to Tucker's death sentence under criminal and federal civil rights laws. There was no dissent and no comment by the justices. In addition, the 5th U. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans turned away her attorneys' efforts to start another round of federal challenges. State courts also rejected her contention that the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles violated the state's Open Meetings Act by not holding a public hearing or public vote in her clemency appeal. Portrayed by some as the prodigal daughter who finally found peace and redemption in a Harris County Jail cell shortly after her arrest, Tucker and her lawyers for the past several weeks waged a massive legal and international public relations appeal for clemency. Long a self-admitted ham who had always enjoyed mugging for a camera -- even during her wild days as a drug-abusing, motorcycle-riding, hot-headed prostitute -- Tucker, her crime and her punishment have become the conundrum in the debate over capital punishment. While her crime still ranks as one of the grisliest in Houston history, her supporters insisted that her Christian rebirth and her efforts to reach beyond her barred prison cell to warn youngsters of the dangers of her former lifestyle were proof she was no longer a danger to society. But those who insisted she should die have maintained that no matter the sometimes-angelic smiling face and twinkling eyes, no amount of changed personality could overcome the horrific facts of her crime. Tucker and her then-lover Daniel Garrett were condemned by a Houston jury in for the June slaying of Dean, a year-old former cable installer. Dean was hacked more than 20 times with one of his own tools -- a 3-foot-long pickax -- as he lay sleeping in his northeast Houston apartment. The motive, Tucker later explained, was to settle a grudge she had against Dean for once parking his leaking motorcycle in her living room and for destroying the only picture she had of herself with her mother. Also killed was Deborah Thornton, 32, an office worker who had fought with her husband and stormed off, only to meet Dean at a party and go home with him. She was lying in bed with Dean when Tucker and Garrett showed up and began their attack. Thornton was hacked more than 20 times, the pickax left embedded in her chest, but neither Dean nor Garrett was ever tried specifically in Thornton's death. Tucker, who was a year-old divorcee, would later claim that she experienced sexual pleasure every time she plunged the heavy ax into her victims. Garrett, 37, also was sentenced to die for the crime, but he died of liver disease in while awaiting retrial in connection with Dean's death. Tucker testified against Garrett at his trial, and after she did so, Harris County authorities dropped the second murder charge against her in connection with Thornton's slaying. Although she pleaded not guilty, once she was convicted, she never again denied the murders, which she said occurred after a weekend of bingeing on drugs and alcohol. Although she claimed her mother introduced her to drugs and urged her into prostitution, she had said, at least in recent weeks, that she no longer blames her mother. Indeed, in her letter pleading to Bush to spare her life, she said, "Justice and law demand my life for the two innocent lives I brutally murdered that night. Karla Faye Tucker was executed by lethal injection tonight, gasping and coughing twice before she was pronounced dead at 6: Bush refused to grant Tucker a one-time temporary reprieve, something he has also not done for the 59 men executed during his three years in office. Since the death penalty was reinstated in , people have been executed nationwide—Tucker is the second woman to be put to death since then. Say Goodbye. The Texas Board of Pardons and Parole was lobbied by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, Amnesty International and even the pope, who wanted to give her a life sentence without parole. The board unanimously rejected 16 similar requests last year. Texas, which is responsible for about a third of the executions nationwide, put to death a record 37 death row inmates in Tucker was taped saying the killings enthralled her to the point of sexual ecstasy. Her cause also attracted support from around the world, with appeals for clemency from the United Nations and the European Parliament. But given the recent history of the Texas parole board, even a single vote from the member panel in favor of clemency for a condemned murderer would be unusual. Interviews with Tucker have been broadcast on television nationwide, bringing much attention to her plea for mercy. During the 12 months ending June 30, , the number of women under the jurisdiction of state and federal prison authorities grew from 73, to 78, Women accounted for 6. Similar claims of conversions by male prisoners, however, have often been disregarded as a right to clemency. December 14, - Conjure the image: An attractive, year-old woman is strapped to a gurney in Texas' execution chamber, her dark, shoulder-length curls splayed across the antiseptic white sheet that covers the hard, cold deathbed. Her charcoal-colored eyes are transfixed ethereally while she utters her final entreaty to the God who she says miraculously transformed her in jail. As a lethal cocktail pumps through her veins, she may involuntarily arch upward -- straining against the leather straps -- and gasp or cough a couple of times before her final breath is expelled in a matter of seconds. That, critics contend, is an image that will haunt Texans if Karla Faye Tucker, a condemned killer from Houston, is executed early next year. Contrast that mental portrait of Tucker with the one that state's attorneys, victims' rights groups and others say should be replayed in people's minds: A wild-eyed, year-old prostitute -- after a weekend orgy of methadone, heroin, Dilaudid, Valium, Placidyls, Somas, Wygesics, Percodan, Mandrax, marijuana, rum and tequila -- smiles maniacally at year-old Jerry Lynn Dean. It ticked her off that he once parked his oil-leaking motorcycle in her living room. She takes her first swing with a pickax. Flesh tears. Blood spurts. Bones crack as the 3-foot-long tool thuds first against Dean and later against his companion, year-old Deborah Thornton. By the time the screams end, Tucker and her accomplice will have hacked their victims more than 20 times. The June murder was one of the grisliest in Houston history, and Tucker could well become the first woman to be executed in Texas since the s. Her accomplice, Daniel Ryan Garrett, also was sentenced to die for his part in the crime. His case was sent back for retrial on appeal, but he died of liver disease in while waiting for a new trial, still behind bars. In a state with the most active execution chamber in the nation -- 37 death sentences have been carried out this year alone and since -- Tucker's case is likely to bring unprecedented scrutiny on Texas and, at least temporarily, refuel the debate over capital punishment. Already, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has been besieged by requests from media around the world wanting to interview the woman who once bragged to her sister that she was sexually gratified each time she axed her victims. Death penalty opponents, religious leaders and thousands of other people -- mostly outside Texas -- are expected to mount an intense campaign in the coming weeks to try to persuade Gov. Bush to commute Tucker's sentence to life imprisonment. Democrat Garry Mauro -- who is challenging Bush's re-election bid -- said he's glad he does not have to face the issue. It's a tough issue. I wish him well on coming to a resolution on it. Televangelist Pat Robertson told 60 Minutes in a recent interview that Tucker has his support and that if Bush "lets this sweet woman of God die, he's a man who shows no mercy. Texas Christian Coalition President Dick Weinhold said he not only personally disagrees with Robertson but knows of no organized effort to spare Tucker's life. She seems to have strong testimony. Her salvation and conversion seem to be And her life seems to really have undergone a transformation. So I'm delighted. That is great. There were two individuals that were murdered. The consequences of her crime call for her death. I don't believe the compassion side should overrule the consequences in this case. But I think there's still consequences for our actions. Dudley Sharp of the Houston-based victims' rights group Justice for All said he expects "religious leaders from all over the world -- not just the pope -- will be putting pressure on the governor" to spare Tucker's life. For clues about how the coming weeks might play in Texas, rewind to North Carolina, It was there that "Death Row Granny" Margie Velma Barfield, a born-again Christian who was posthumously praised by Billy Graham for her impact on other prisoners, became the first woman to be put to death in the modern era of the capital punishment. The portly, bespectacled year-old private nurse and former Sunday school teacher was convicted of lacing her boyfriend's food with rat poison. She later admitted to poisoning three others, including her mother. Her case also became a last-minute political issue in a tough U. Senate election in which liberal Democrat Gov. Jim Hunt challenged Republican incumbent Sen. Jesse Helms. Political analysts said Hunt was doomed to be hurt politically regardless of what he did. Had he commuted Barfield's sentence, he risked alienating his conservative pro-death penalty constituency. Some analysts said at the time that his refusal to show compassion toward the woman may have persuaded liberal, anti-death penalty voters to stay away from the polls. Joe Freeman Britt, the former prosecutor who sent Barfield to death row, remembers the pressure that mounted in North Carolina. That then generated a certain political pressure in the case. But unlike Tucker's jailhouse conversion, Britt said, Barfield had always professed to being a God-fearing, church-going woman. He said Barfield bolstered her image as a devout Christian by asking her employers -- the families who hired her to care for ailing, elderly relatives whom she later poisoned -- for Wednesday nights and Sundays off so she could go to church. Once imprisoned she, too, began leading Bible studies and counseling troubled female felons. She also uttered a deathbed apology. The image the media portrayed most often was that of a grandmother kneeling in prayer in prison, Britt added, and some of the victims' relatives had a difficult time believing she was capable of the crimes. Britt, however, said he was unfazed by arguments that Barfield should not be executed because of her Christianity -- a claim of which he was skeptical. I hope it's true. I hope they do that. And if Tucker has had this experience, that's wonderful. It prepares her better for the judgment under the law. Although death penalty opponents had predicted a public outrage if North Carolina proceeded with the execution of Barfield, Britt said that never materialized. One key difference between Tucker's and Barfield's cases is the commutation process. While North Carolina law allows its governor wide discretion in determining whether and when to pardon felons or reduce their sentences, the Texas Constitution allows a governor to take such action only if the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles first recommends it. And even if the board does, the governor may still reject a commutation. Additionally, the state constitution allows the governor to grant a one-time, day delay in an execution. Bush has never granted a day reprieve, but his predecessor, Democrat Ann Richards, did so twice. Tucker has not yet filed a petition for a reprieve or commutation with the parole board, but her attorney said he plans to ask the governor to commute her sentence. A Jan. In interviews with the Chronicle last week, several of the 18 parole board members indicate Tucker will have a tough time convincing them that her death sentence should not be carried out. Any pleas Tucker might make based on her turning her life over to God apparently will not carry much weight with some parole board members. Male convicts have raised the issue before and been rejected. Gwynne Austin. January 19, Karla Faye Tucker is the nicest woman on death row. She is so nice, in fact, and so well liked by people who know her that it is virtually impossible to look at this attractive, sweet-natured, born-again Christian and imagine the gruesome crime to which she confessed in Houston, Texas, on June 13, Back then she was a drug-addicted prostitute who, during a weekend orgy with her boyfriend, had consumed an astonishing quantity of heroin, Valium, speed, percodan, mandrax, marijuana, dilaudid, methadone, tequila and rum. The two then took a pickax and hacked to death Jerry Lynn Dean, 27, her ex-lover, and Deborah Thornton, 32, his companion of the moment, while they slept. Tucker, who left the pickax embedded in Thornton's chest, boasted at her trial that she had experienced an orgasm with each swing of the ax. She was convicted in and sentenced to death. Fourteen years later, in the state with the busiest execution chamber in the land, Tucker now finds herself next in line to die. Barring a last-minute delay or commutation, on Feb. If that happens, she will become the first woman executed in Texas since Chipita Rodriguez was hanged in for killing a horse trader--and the first woman in the U. There is no doubt that Tucker is guilty. She says so herself. What makes her case striking is not just her gender but also her apparently profound conversion to Christianity. The latter has prompted an unlikely cohort of supporters to come to her defense at the 11th hour, including Deborah Thornton's brother and Jerry Lynn Dean's sister, the homicide detective who put her on death row, several former prosecutors, televangelist Pat Robertson and thousands of citizens. Her staunchest supporter is Dana Brown, the prison chaplain she met and married two years ago--a relationship that has never been consummated, even by a kiss, because death-row inmates are not allowed contact with visitors. Says Tucker's attorney, George "Mac" Secrest: Skeptics respond that jailhouse conversions are both commonplace and not relevant in deciding who receives a pardon. Bush, who must concur for a sentence to be commuted, will block her execution. Bush, a law-and-order Republican facing a re-election campaign this year, would seem to gain little politically by such a move. Moreover, there simply are not the requisite legal questions or doubts about her guilt that might prompt commutation. Pardon has never been given to anyone in Texas based on religious conversion. None of which will make it any easier to watch the pleasant, earnestly friendly Tucker become the th person killed since Texas resumed the death penalty in She has said repeatedly in interviews that she is "far removed" from the person who committed the crime. But she is the person almost certain to die for it. A group of Texans opposed to the death penalty joined with a Danish human rights group Monday to release new stamps commemorating Karla Faye Tucker, the first woman executed in Texas since The stamps, which cannot be used to mail letters or packages, are similar in function to Easter Seals. Tucker have been made in the hope they will remind you of a human being killed by the state of Texas," said Karen Grue of the Denmark-based group Living Artists, which designed the stamps. There are two designs, both featuring the same face of a smiling Tucker. In one, she appears in front of a prison gurney similar to the one on which she was executed on Feb. On the other stamp, she appears opposite an American flag with an oil rig in the background. The stamps, intended to put a human face on those executed, are being distributed locally by the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and overseas by Amnesty International's office in Copenhagen. The president of Justice For All, a local victim's rights group, called the stamps a poorly conceived idea. The work would have been closer to the truth if it had included a pickax and a great deal of blood. Texas v. Karla Faye Tucker - Background Report: A Question of Mercy. Should Karla Faye Tucker die? Bush faced in the weeks leading up to Tucker's execution. The chief execution technician had decided that this would produce the longest possible execution for her, at an estimated 19 minutes 30 seconds. Once the way in which she would die was announced, the guards began to set up for her hanging. A box was placed under her feet, allowing her to stand, but only barely. There was another rope attached to the box, presumably so she could be autonomously executed without anyone else in the room. Her hands were released from the ropes above her head and handcuffed behind her back, but not after a noose was wrapped around her neck. After five more minutes of preparation, the guards left the room and Laura was left alone. For a while she stood in silence, shivering at the thought of her own impending death. Finally, after several more minutes, the TV came on. She had seen the execution show before and knew what to expect from the commentators. They began by talking about the subject and making bets on how long she would last. She would be suspended by the neck roughly a foot off the ground until she suffocated. They told the audience that it was likely that she would urinate during the process. For some women that meant they had died, for others, it was simply a reflex from suffocation. Live images of Laura in the execution chamber appeared on the screen. She tried to smile. After five more minutes, a countdown appeared on the screen. The box beneath her feet was violently removed and Laura was left dangling by her neck. She tried to yell for help but only emitted a faint gurgle. Unable to control herself, she began to pee everywhere as she spun in circles suspended by the rope. She kicked and thrashed in a futile attempt to relieve the pressure on her neck. Suddenly everything began to go black. The group appear relaxed and upbeat. Until now they had remained unseen. However, last week the pictures were published for the first time on Phoenix TV, a broadcaster in Hong Kong. The women had all been convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced to death. Ms Donggui is shown carefully folding her red prison clothes on the floor. She smiles as she displays off a red top to the photographer, choosing what her last outfit will be. No use for these anymore: Choosing execution outfit: Ms Xiuling tries on a black top, as she felt the white top made her look fat. Another death row inmate looks on, her feet in shackles. Crouching on her mattress, with her hands and feet shackled, she holds a bowl of green bean soup. In the corner of a room is a red bowl used for washing and a McDonald's meal given to prisoners. Moments later a guard appears and feeds her a lychee before she's escorted the next morning to the execution grounds. As she prepares to be taken away, Ms Donggui applies red nail polish with the help of prison guards. In another scene, Ms Juhua sits in her cell as a fellow convict records her last will and testament. Just yards away Ms Xiuling and Ms Qingxiu laugh as they play cards with inmates. The cameraman remembers Ms Xiuling as being 'excited and exaggerated' during the evening. The chubby year-old prisoner, who had been caught carrying 7, grams illegal drugs, was the liveliest of the inmates, gently resting her head on another women's leg as she smiles. A painful walk: At 7am in the morning, the convicts are walked into the execution ground to face their death as the guards watch them. Paraded as an example: Ms Xiuling is at the front of the line as 16 other convicts are walked in front of members of the public to the execution ground. Minutes before she is shot in the back of the head, Ms Xiuling breaks down in tears. She was the only one of the prisoners to cry on the morning of the execution. She was worried about appearing 'too fat' in her pyjamas, and one of the inmates found her a black top to change into. Another image shows her squeezing into a new pair of shoes. But throughout the evening she was restless, and began praying to the heavens to be allowed another chance at life. At 6am, Ms Qingxiu, 49, hands over her old clothes to another inmate who will need them. She moves to a temporary cell and joins Ms Xiuling, who is dabbing tears from her eyes. The final few photographs show the inmates walking into the execution ground. A Japanese executioner kills a condemned Chinese prisoner in the town of Tientsin in during the years of Imperial Japan.

A black hood was immediately drawn over her head, concealing part of her long, silky, brown hair.

Once the hood was removed, she could see up and down the hall, lined with hundreds of occupied cells.

Each cell contained a young lady, much like herself. They were all naked, officially to prevent them from concealing any weapons or tools to escape, but unofficially, it was to acclimate them to public nudity, for they would be unclad during their executions.

At the police station she appeared distressed and confided to police that she knew Erotic execution photos the killer was, and named Freddy Bywaters. Believing herself to be a witness, rather than an accomplice, Thompson provided them with details of her association Erotic execution photos Bywaters. They were each charged with murder. Bywaters co-operated completely.

The love letters were produced as evidence. In these Edith Thompson passionately declared her love for Bywaters, and her desire to be free of Percy.

She said in her letters that she had ground a glass Erotic execution photos bulb to shards and had fed them to Percy mixed into mashed potato, and on another had fed him poison.

Each cell contained a young lady, much like herself. They were all naked, officially to prevent them from concealing any weapons or tools to escape, but unofficially, it was to acclimate them to public nudity, for they would be unclad during their executions. A guard followed her in and ordered her to face the wall. Laura had not the slightest clue as to what that might be, but she was certain it was not to be pleasant. The next day Laura awoke to a loud banging on her cell door. A single guard opened it and ordered her to stand up. He then proceeded to handcuff her and lead her down the long hallway. Laura saw that everyone's eyes were following her with a look of pity and terror. As Laura and her escort got closer to their destination, she could hear muffled screams of agony. They became louder the longer the pair walked. Finally, they reached an unoccupied room. Laura was forced inside and forced to lay on her back on the metal table in the center of the room. Her hands and ankles were restrained to the table by metal rings protruding from it. A different guard approached her and began to speak. This is not your execution. At this time, you will be subjected to pain in order to prepare you for your execution. Now, please remember that this will not kill you. He then cut off the panties, leaving her clean shaven vagina exposed. He did the same with her pink bra, allowing her firm breasts to be fully appreciated by any onlooker. Then, two more guards walked up to her and began to prepare her for the agony she would soon experience.

It is not the sort of thing that they would bring to the knowledge of their partner for life. Bywaters as a woman capable of doing anything - even murder - to keep his love? She had to: Bywaters wanted to get away from her. That was a true and appropriate description. Weis seeks to draw attention to what he considers to be the inappropriateness of the Victorian morality of Mr. Justice Shearman KC to the era of the s. However Young, writing contemporaneously with the trial, suggests that it was the young of that generation who needed to learn morality: Justice Shearman frequently referred to Bywaters as "the adulterer," apparently quite unconscious of tho fact that, to people of Bywaters' generation, educated in the ethics of dear labour and cheap pleasure, of commercial sport and the dancing hall, adultery is merely a quaint ecclesiastical term for what seems to them the great romantic adventure of their lives. Adultery to such people may or may not be "sporting," but its wrongness is not a matter that would trouble them for a moment. Sinai, for them, is wrapped in impenetrable cloud. Weis's legal criticisms are better argued by Broad below , but both raise the same perennial objection to the fairness of Edith's conviction that there was no direct evidence of the involvement of Edith in the planning the murder, or that she had even consented to its commission on the night in question. The deficit in evidence as to direct arrangement was conceded by the Court of Appeal. However it pursued a line of reasoning to the effect that proof of instigation of murder in a community of purpose without evidence of rebuttal raises an "inference of preconcerted arrangement". The Court of Appeal held that her earlier prolonged incitement to murder revealed in her letters, combined with her extraordinary catalogue of lies about what happened on the night of the murder told to several witnesses, up until her second witness statement, which was open to being found untrustworthy, her meetings with Bywaters on the day of the murder, and the content of her last letter, was sufficient to convict her of arranging the murder. The Court of Appeal seemed to take a narrower approach to "principal in the second degree" than the Court, but it is unclear, because "preconcerted arrangement" admits of different shades of meaning. The Court of Appeal seemed determined to forestall any argument based on the mere method or timing of the murder being unagreed to, if there was other plausible evidence of a preconcerted object of murder. Its narrow judgment is unsatisfactory to those who now allege Edith played no part in the murder itself. However its judgement is limited in extent to the point it was addressing, which was continuity of purpose up until the commission of the murder. If non-agreement as to the means and timing of the murder be conceded, there was merit to its claim that the case "exhibits from beginning to end no redeeming feature. The compact that they had admitted between themselves was one of "culpable intimacy. Everything pointed to Edith desiring the death of her husband over an extended period, to the day of the murder itself, as evidenced by her ridiculous cover for Bywaters after the commission of the murder. What substantive evidence had the Defence put forward to deny her guilt besides her cry "Don't Don't! One might reasonably posit Edith to have been in some kind of semi-hypnotic trance cast by Bywaters's malevolent spell, that she was unable ever to free herself from. He appeared to maintain her innocence of murder throughout his life, claiming that Edith "paid the extreme penalty for her immorality. Curtis-Bennett said to Mr. Stanley Bishop, a journalist, "She spoiled her chances by her evidence and by her demeanour. I had a perfect answer to everything which I am sure would have won an acquittal if she had not been a witness. She was a vain woman and an obstinate one. She had an idea that she could carry the jury. Also she realized the enormous public interest, and decided to play up to it by entering the witness-box. Her imagination was highly developed, but it failed to show her the mistake she was making. Curtis-Bennet argued a more legally sure but evidentially bankrupt defence based on Edith acting the part of poisoner, or engaging in a fantasy. Yet she seemed to nullify this by her evidence of reacting to Bywater's suggestions. One of her main lines of defence, that she was constantly seeking a divorce or separation from her husband, and that it rather than murder was the main object of the attested five-year compact between her and Bywaters shown in her letters, was dismissed by the Judge as a sham. Curtis-Bennet's linking of the innocence of Edith to that of Bywaters at the end of his closing speech disclosed the dire straits to which Edith's defence had sunk. Young avers that the Defence used the wrong tactics. He said: Thompson, 'I did not murder Percy Thompson, I had nothing to do with it. I had no knowledge of it, and I was stunned and horrified when it took place, and I defy the prosecution to introduce any evidence with which that denial is not absolutely compatible," and had rested on that, I do not think you could have found a British jury to convict her. However Young's point, that the burden of proof was on the Crown, to prove murder, rather than on the Defence to rebut a presumption of murder, is certainly a valid one. A criticism can be made of the Court and also the Court of Appeal that it did not define "principal in the second degree" sufficiently precisely to give its critics confidence in the proper administration of justice, especially given that this was a capital case. The contention of the Crown was wide: Thompson, or that, if there was not an actual agreement in terms, there was an instigation by Mrs. Thompson to get rid of him, on which Bywaters acted so as to kill him. This does not seem to have been objected to by the Judge, who averred:. I quite accept the law of the learned Solicitor-General that if you hire an assassin amd say: I also accept the proposition that if a woman says to a man, 'I want this man murdered; you promise me to do it,' and he then promises her she believing that he is going to keep his promise as soon as he gets an opportunity and goes out and murders someone, then she also is guilty of murder. A five-year compact between Edith and Bywaters was shown to have lasted throughout the entire course of their exchange of letters up until the date of the murder. It was obvious that if only one of its aims had been the death of Percy Thompson, which seemed tolerably plain from the letters, and from Edith's persistent lying on the night of the murder, and her subsequent false witness statement s , then on the above definition of "principal in the second degree" as no more than as instigator in a community of purpose, Edith would be found guilty. This was presumably the basis on which the Jury's decision rested. It is difficult to see how the Jury could have arrived at any other conclusion. The Judge, Mr. Justice Shearman KC, placed much weight on inconsistencies in her evidence, particularly her statements to the police concerning the night of the murder that suggested she had intended to conceal her witness of the crime, and perhaps conversations of criminal intent with Bywaters preceding it, although she always vigorously denied foreknowledge of it. The Defence did succeed in some points, showing that guesswork by the prosecution over ambiguous content of some of the letters was fanciful and wrong. That her letters did not necessarily reflect her deeds in respect of the so-termed poison plots was fairly clear. The impending crime of Bywaters is seen in the morbid and almost demented possessiveness of his last letters to Edith. The entire folio of letters was later published by Filson Young in Notable British Trials Series in , although the letters are not in any kind of chronological order, for which see Stuart Broad below. Edgar Lustgarten, "Verdict in Dispute," , states on p. She had intelligence, vitality, a natural grace and poise, sensitiveness, humour and illumining all these that quintessential femininity that fascinates the male. That might make her an accessory after the fact. It could not bring her into danger of the rope. A critique of the conduct of her trial and the state of the law was made by Stuart Broad. He also attacked the Judge for using morally prejudiced language to incite the prejudice of the Jury. He concedes that it was within the rules for the Jury to decide what the words in Edith's letters meant and what was intended by them. Broad went on to attack the general conduct of the trial [46]:. She should have been granted a separate trial in that she was handicapped by having to appear alongside Bywaters. The Judge allowed the Jury to be inflamed by prejudice on account of her immorality. Suspicion based on prejudice was allowed to take the place of proof of meaning, motive and intention in respect of her letters. Broad also levels criticism against the prosecution for the unfair use of her letters at trial, covering such matters as:. The new grave in plot remained unmarked for over twenty years. Her death was a legal formality'. The names of the other three women are inscribed around the edges of the tombstone. Avis Graydon died in , without ever knowing that her sister had been reburied in Brookwood, thus she never had the opportunity either to visit the grave or to erect some form of memorial over it. The clients, judging from the witness accounts, were mostly servants from local houses who had become pregnant, and who had employers who were keen for the matter to be resolved discreetly. An unknown number of babies were murdered this way, possibly dozens. Little is known about Annie Walters, but Sach's background is well-documented: She was the fourth child of ten and had three sisters. She married a builder called Jeffrey Sach in Sach was active long before she engaged Walters. She lied about her age — she was 32, not Walters' background is unknown, but she had been married. She seems to have had a drinking problem and she would periodically advertise herself as a sick nurse. On her arrest she was determined to be "feeble", that is to say, feeble-minded. There is a small possibility that the pair may have been involved in an earlier homicide that resulted in another woman being executed. Circumstantial evidence suggested that Louise was the murderer, and the killing was to be rid of a supposed encumbrance due to her wanting to marry a man named Lucas. However, in her claims of innocence, Louise said she had taken Manfred out of the care of one woman to give him to two ladies she met who had an establishment for the care of growing children. The police claimed they made some effort in looking for the two women, but the extent of their investigation is unknown. In any event, Louise Masset was tried and convicted of the murder and, despite a petition for mercy, was executed in early January With the exception of Ruth Ellis , the remains of the four other women executed at Holloway i. The grave is marked with a horizontally laid grey granite tombstone, and the names of all the occupants are engraved on it. Some time after the trial of Sach and Walters, the building had its name chiselled off the stone plaque above the window and is now anonymous. On Feb. Later that night, she attacked her husband with an axe, seriously injuring him. She was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. On the night of March 20, , after Gov. It wrote: Her thin lips merely tightened. Warden Sage reported to his superiors: There was no revolting feature. Historically, women have always had to do something particularly awful to be convicted of a serious crime, and to sentence a woman to death — oh! Especially when the female in question was good looking. One of the most beautiful, indeed absolutely stunning women ever convicted of murder and sentenced to death in the United States of America was a gal by the name of Toni Jo Henry. And she was a looker. Nearly every description ever printed of her focused on her eyes. After three trials, three convictions, and three pronouncements of the awful sentence, she probably expected to die. But still she was light-hearted about it. Have you any idea how much talent is being wasted here today? It was one of many jokes she cracked as she waited for the phone to ring, chain-smoking and making small talk. Her real name was Annie Beatrice, but that was a little too frou-frou for a girl whose mother died when she was four. Raised by an aunt, she dropped out of grade school and started running away and ramming the roads when she was a teenager. Cowboy called her a swell kid. He got her off cocaine. He said he loved her, and so she married him. But even when they met, he was on bond for a murder charge for the murder of a police officer. After they were married, Cowboy drew 50 years for murder and went to the big house in Huntsville. Toni Jo went crazy and vowed that the law could not come between them. Like steal some guns and ammo. Like set off on foot to get from Louisiana to Texas with some wiry good-for-nothing half-boyfriend slash accomplice in tow, a punk named Harold Finnon Burkes. Like pull a pistol on some traveling salesman dumb enough to stop to give you both a ride. Like make the poor automobile owner strip naked and beg for his life before you shoot him. After Toni Jo murdered J. That, of course, turned out to be a big mistake, because he was a rat, and before she knew it she was in a jail cell. So she did, admitting they bumped the guy off. Toni Jo Henry went on trial in Lake Charles, where her reputation preceded her. The flashbulbs sometimes drowned out the arguments of counsel. And all in attendance let their wishes be known. During the trial various audience members made the hanging sign by drawing their fingers across their throats while looking at the jurors. Henry , the Supreme Court of Louisiana said:. The populace clamored for the death penalty. They demanded the life of the accused and clearly manifested their desires to the jury by signs and gestures which could not be misunderstood. The trial was attended by throngs. Hundreds more than could be seated crowded into the courthouse. The courtroom was literally packed and jammed with spectators. The judge says that more than either stood or were seated within the railing which separated his stand from the space reserved for spectators. The record clearly shows that they were present not merely through interest, but for the purpose of letting it be known that they demanded the death penalty…. She got a new trial. The same result followed, so they gave her a third trial. But they ran out of excuses and finally set a date in for Toni Jo to sit in the Chair. Cowboy escaped from a prison farm a few days before she was supposed to be electrocuted in a desperate effort to reach her; he was captured two days later. That guy is the king of my heart. He gave me a home and he got that drug monkey off my back. He thought I just smoked marijuana and grinned. But when I told him my train went a lot further than marijuana he took me to a hotel room and I lay there in bed for a week and he would come in now and then and ask me how I was doing. You feel so out of it. The reporter asked about the man she killed, the man who left behind a wife and daughter. Toni Jo said her dying wish was to talk to Cowboy, and though it violated the rules, they let her call him. She did all the talking and he did all the crying. Toni Jo hung up after the call with Cowboy. Toni Jo promised to go quietly, except she squawked when they shaved her head. They promised to hunt up a scarf for her to put over her bald head, knowing the photographers were lined up outside to see her taken to the death room. One of those photos, at right, shows her jailer looking more sad than Toni Jo. Toni Jo Henry was electrocuted November 28, The wire services all reported that Cowboy Henry screamed and thrashed and destroyed his cell in his grief. In a final awful coda, Cowboy was released from prison a handful of years after his wife's execution. The decade didn't end before Cowboy Henry was shot and killed and raced into the dark to be with his bad girl from the bayou. At her trial she claimed that he had imprisoned and threatened to shoot her should she attempt to leave, whereupon she took his gun and shot him. Baker was the only woman to be executed by electrocution in Georgia. She was granted a full and unconditional pardon by the State of Georgia in , 60 years after her execution. Her mother, Queenie, worked for a farmer named J. The all-white male jury convicted her by the end of the afternoon. Her court-appointed counsel, W. Baker was transferred to Reidsville State Prison on February 23, Where I was I could not overcome it. God has forgiven me. I have nothing against anyone. I picked cotton for Mr. Pritchett, and he has been good to me. I am ready to go. I am one in the number. I am ready to meet my God. I have a very strong conscience. Since her pardoning a simple head stone has been placed above her grave. Velma Margie Barfield's Gateway to Heaven: Velma Barfield was a year-old grandmother and serial poisoner who used arsenic as her weapon. She was also the first woman executed after the death penalty was reinstituted in in North Carolina and the first woman to die by lethal injection. Velma Margie Barfield - Her Childhood: She was the second oldest child of nine and oldest daughter to Murphy and Lillie Bullard. Murphy was a small tobacco and cotton farmer. Soon after Velma's birth the family had to give up the farm and move in with Murphy's parents in Fayetteville. Murphy's father and mother died not long afterwards and the family remained in Murphy's parents' house. Murphy and Lillie Bullard: Murphy Bullard was a strict disciplinarian. Homemaker Lillie was submissive and did not interfere with how he treated their nine children. Velma did not inherit her mother's same submissive ways which resulted in several severe strap beatings by her father. In when she began attending school, she found some reprieve from being inside her cramped volatile home. Velma also proved to be a bright attentive student but socially rejected by her peers because of her impoverished style. The Temptation to Steal: Velma began stealing after feeling poor and inadequate around the other kids at school. She began by stealing coins from her father and was later caught stealing money from an elderly neighbor. Velma's punishment was severe and temporarily cured her from stealing. Her time was also more supervised and she was told she had to help with taking care of her sisters and brothers. A Skilled Manipulator: By the age of 10, Velma learned how to control talking back to her stern father. She also became a decent baseball player and played on a team her father organized. Enjoying her "favorite daughter" status, Velma learned how to manipulate her father to get what she wanted. Later in life, she accused her father of molesting her as a child, although her family strongly denied her charges. Velma and Thomas Burke: Around the time Velma entered high school her father took a job in a textile factory and the family moved to Red Springs, SC. Her grades were poor but she proved to be a good basketball player. She also had a boyfriend, Thomas Burke, who was a year ahead of her in school. Velma and Thomas dated under the strict curfews set by Velma's father. At age 17, Velma and Burke decided to quit school and marry, over the strong objections of Murphy Bullard Dedicated Parents: In December , Velma gave birth to a son, Ronald Thomas. By September , she gave birth to their second child, a baby girl they named Kim. Velma, a stay-at-home mom, loved the time she spent with her children. Thomas Burke worked at different jobs and although they were poor, they had the basic comforts. Velma was also dedicated to teaching her children solid Christian values. The young, poor Burke family was admired by friends and family for their good parenting skills. Velma Burke - A Model Mother: Velma Burke's enthusiasm for being an involved mother continued when the children began school. She participated in school-sponsored events, volunteered to chaperone school trips, and enjoyed driving children to various school functions. However, even with her participation, she felt emptiness while her children were at school. To help fill the void she decided to return to work. With the extra income, the family was able to move into a better home in Parkton, SC. The Burke's Problems Begin: In , Velma had a hysterectomy. The surgery was successful physically but mentally and emotionally Velma changed. She suffered severe mood swings and temper tantrums. She worried she was less desirable and womanly since she could no longer have children. When Thomas joined the Jaycees, Velma's resentment soared because of his outside activities. Their problems intensified when she discovered he was drinking with his friends after the meetings, something he knew she was against. Booze and Drugs: In , Thomas was involved in a car accident and had a concussion. From that point on he suffered severe headaches and his drinking increased as way to deal with his pain. The Burke household became explosive with endless arguments. Velma, consumed with stress, was hospitalized and treated with sedatives and vitamins. Once home, she gradually increased her prescription drug use and went to different doctors to get multiple prescriptions of Valium to feed her growing addiction. Thomas Stuart - Death Number One: Thomas, displaying alcoholic behavior, pushed the family deeper into dysfunctional madness. One day while the kids were at school, Velma went to the laundermat and returned to find her house on fire and Thomas dead from smoke inhalation. Velma's suffering appeared short-lived although her misfortune continued. A few months after Thomas died another fire broke out, this time destroying the home. Velma and her children fled to Velma's parents and waited for the insurance check. Jenning Barfield - Death Number Two: Jenning Barfield was a widower suffering from diabetes, emphysema and heart disease. Velma and Jennings met soon after Thomas died. In August , the two married but the marriage dissolved as quickly as it began because of Velma's drug use. Barfield died of heart failure before the two could divorce. Velma seemed inconsolable. Twice a widow, her son off in the military, her father diagnosed with lung cancer and beyond belief, her home, for a third time, caught on fire. Home Again: Velma returned to her parents' home. Her father died of lung cancer shortly afterwards. Velma and her mother constantly quarreled. Velma found Lillie too demanding and Lillie did not like Velma's drug use. During the summer of , Lillie was hospitalized because of a severe stomach virus. The doctors were unable to diagnose her problem, but she recovered within a few days and returned home. Choosing execution outfit: Ms Xiuling tries on a black top, as she felt the white top made her look fat. Another death row inmate looks on, her feet in shackles. Crouching on her mattress, with her hands and feet shackled, she holds a bowl of green bean soup. In the corner of a room is a red bowl used for washing and a McDonald's meal given to prisoners. Moments later a guard appears and feeds her a lychee before she's escorted the next morning to the execution grounds. As she prepares to be taken away, Ms Donggui applies red nail polish with the help of prison guards. In another scene, Ms Juhua sits in her cell as a fellow convict records her last will and testament. Just yards away Ms Xiuling and Ms Qingxiu laugh as they play cards with inmates. The cameraman remembers Ms Xiuling as being 'excited and exaggerated' during the evening. The chubby year-old prisoner, who had been caught carrying 7, grams illegal drugs, was the liveliest of the inmates, gently resting her head on another women's leg as she smiles. A painful walk: At 7am in the morning, the convicts are walked into the execution ground to face their death as the guards watch them. Paraded as an example: Ms Xiuling is at the front of the line as 16 other convicts are walked in front of members of the public to the execution ground. Minutes before she is shot in the back of the head, Ms Xiuling breaks down in tears. She was the only one of the prisoners to cry on the morning of the execution. She was worried about appearing 'too fat' in her pyjamas, and one of the inmates found her a black top to change into. Another image shows her squeezing into a new pair of shoes. But throughout the evening she was restless, and began praying to the heavens to be allowed another chance at life. At 6am, Ms Qingxiu, 49, hands over her old clothes to another inmate who will need them. She moves to a temporary cell and joins Ms Xiuling, who is dabbing tears from her eyes. The final few photographs show the inmates walking into the execution ground. Some of them have their legs shackled as they join 16 other death row inmates. Ms Xiuling is held by a guard, but she can't stop herself from crying as her life draws to a close. The women are taken away by guards and minutes later shot in the back of the head.

By this time Thompson seemed to be enjoying the publicity she was attracting and insisted that she would take the stand. Her demeanour was variously flirtatious, self-pitying and melodramatic and she made a poor impression on the judge and the jury, particularly when she contradicted herself. She had claimed that she had never poisoned her husband, and references in her letters to attempting to kill him were merely attempts to impress her paramour.

Bywaters stated that Edith Thompson had known nothing of his plans for the simple reason that he had not intended to murder Percy Thompson. His aim had been to confront him, and force him to deal with the situation, and when Thompson had reacted in a superior manner, Bywaters had lost his temper.

Edith Thompson, he repeatedly stated, had made no suggestion to him to kill Percy, nor did she know that Bywaters intended to confront him. In Erotic execution photos the letters, Bywaters stated that he had never believed Edith had attempted to harm her husband, but that he believed she had a vivid imagination, fuelled by the novels she enjoyed reading, and in her letters she viewed herself in some way as one of these fictional characters.

Before and during the trial, Thompson and Bywaters were the subjects of highly sensationalist and critical media commentary. However, after they had been sentenced to death there was a dramatic shift in public attitudes and in Erotic execution photos media coverage. Almost Erotic execution photos million people signed click at this page petition against the imposed death sentences.

Bywaters attracted admiration for his fierce loyalty and protectiveness towards Thompson. Thompson was regarded as a foolish woman, but attracted sympathy because Erotic execution photos was generally considered abhorrent to hang a woman — no woman had been executed in Britain since Thompson herself stated that she would not hang, and when her parents were allowed to visit her she urged her father Erotic execution photos simply Erotic execution photos her home.

A few days before their executions, Thompson was told that the date of execution had been fixed, at which point she lost her composure. She spent the last few days of her life in a state Erotic execution photos near hysteria, crying, screaming, Erotic execution photos, and unable to eat. On the morning of her execution she was heavily sedated, but remained in an agitated state.

The two executions occurred simultaneously at 9. Later, as was the rule, the bodies of Thompson and Bywaters were buried within the walls of the Erotic execution photos in which they had been executed. All women hanged in Britain after Thompson were required to wear special knickers made of canvas which would prevent a recurrence of the massive bleeding suffered by Thompson.

Edith Thompson was one of only seventeen women hanged in the United Kingdom during the 20th century. The main basis for this argument is that there was no evidence that Edith was party "Erotic execution photos" arranging the murder on the Erotic execution photos in question, but the issue is bound up with his perception of what it means to be "principal to murder in the second Erotic execution photos i.

As to her character, the trial Judge, Mr. The former labelled her as an adulterer, deceitful and wicked and, by implication, easily capable of murder. In his summing up, he had said of Edith "This is not an Erotic execution photos charge of murder Am I right or wrong in saying that this woman is one of the most extraordinary personalities that you or I have ever met?

Have you ever read Such things have been very seldom put by pen upon paper. This is the woman you have to deal with, not Erotic execution photos ordinary woman. She is one of those jolie boob job Angelina personalities met with from time to time who stand out for some reason or another You are men of the world and you must know that where there is a liaison which includes some one who is married, it will be part of the desire of that person to keep secret the relations from the other partner.

It is not the sort of thing that they would bring to the knowledge of their partner for life. Bywaters as a woman capable of doing anything - even murder - to keep his love?

Curtis-Bennett said to Mr. Stanley Bishop, a journalist, "She spoiled her chances by her evidence and by her demeanour.

I had a perfect answer to everything which I am sure would have won an acquittal if she had not been a witness. She was a vain woman and an obstinate one. She had an idea that she could carry the jury. Also she realized the enormous public interest, and decided to play up to it by entering the witness-box. Her imagination was highly developed, but it failed to show her the mistake she was making. Curtis-Bennet argued a more legally sure but evidentially bankrupt defence based on Erotic execution photos acting the part of poisoner, or engaging in a fantasy.

Erotic execution photos she seemed to nullify this by her evidence of reacting to Bywater's suggestions. One of her main lines of defence, that she was constantly seeking a divorce or separation from her husband, and that it rather than murder was the main object of the attested five-year compact between her and Bywaters shown in her letters, was dismissed by the Judge as a sham.

Curtis-Bennet's linking of the innocence of Edith to that of Bywaters at the end of his closing speech disclosed the dire straits to which Edith's defence had sunk. Young avers that the Defence used the Erotic execution photos tactics. He said: Thompson, 'I did not murder Percy Thompson, I had nothing to do with it. I had no knowledge of it, and I was stunned and horrified when it took Erotic execution photos, and I defy the prosecution Erotic execution photos introduce any evidence with which that denial is not absolutely compatible," and had rested on that, I do not think you could have found a Erotic execution photos jury to convict her.

However Young's point, that the burden of proof was on the Crown, to prove murder, rather than on the Defence to rebut a presumption of murder, is certainly a valid one. A criticism can be made of the Court and also the Court of Appeal that it did not Erotic execution photos "principal in the second degree" sufficiently precisely to give its critics confidence in the proper administration of justice, especially given that this was a capital case.

The contention of the Crown was wide: Thompson, or that, if there was not an actual agreement in terms, there was an instigation by Mrs. Thompson to get rid of him, on which Bywaters acted so as to kill him. This does not see more to have been objected to by the Judge, who averred:. I quite accept the law of the learned Solicitor-General that if you hire an assassin amd Erotic execution photos I also accept the proposition that if a woman says to a man, 'I want this man murdered; you promise me to do it,' and he then promises her she believing that he is going to keep his promise as soon as he gets an opportunity and goes out and murders someone, then she also is guilty of murder.

A five-year compact between Edith and Bywaters was shown to have lasted see more the entire course of their exchange of letters up until the date of the murder.

It was obvious that if only one of its aims had been the death of Percy Thompson, which seemed tolerably plain from the letters, and from Edith's persistent Erotic execution photos on Erotic execution photos night of the murder, and her subsequent false witness statement sthen on the above definition of "principal in the second degree" as no more than as instigator in a community of purpose, Edith would be found guilty.

This was presumably the basis on which the Jury's decision rested. It is difficult to see how the Jury could have arrived at any other Erotic execution photos. The Judge, Mr. Justice Shearman KC, placed much weight on inconsistencies in her evidence, particularly her statements to the police concerning the night of the murder that suggested she had intended to conceal her witness of the crime, and perhaps conversations of criminal intent with Bywaters preceding it, although she always vigorously denied foreknowledge of it.

The Read more did succeed in some points, showing that guesswork by the prosecution over ambiguous Erotic execution photos of some of the letters was Erotic execution photos and wrong.

That her letters did not necessarily reflect her deeds in respect of the so-termed poison plots was fairly clear. The impending crime of Bywaters is seen in the morbid Erotic execution photos almost demented possessiveness of his last letters to Edith. The Erotic execution photos folio of letters was later published by Filson Young in Notable British Trials Series inalthough the letters are not in any kind of chronological order, for which see Stuart Broad below.

A critique Femmes musulmanes suisse the conduct of her trial and the state of the law was made by Stuart Broad. He also attacked the Judge for using morally prejudiced language to incite the prejudice of the Jury.

He concedes that it was within the rules for the Jury to decide what the words in Edith's letters meant and what was intended by them. Broad went on to attack the general conduct of the trial [46]:. She should have been granted a separate trial in that she was handicapped by having to appear alongside Bywaters.

The Judge allowed the Jury to be inflamed by prejudice on account of her immorality. Erotic execution photos based on prejudice was Erotic execution photos to take the place of proof of meaning, motive and intention in respect of Erotic execution photos letters. Broad also levels criticism against the prosecution for the unfair use of her letters at trial, covering such matters as:.

A few hundred capital punishment abolitionists stood vigil in protest while death penalty advocates sparred verbally with them. It was in the final months leading up to her death that Tucker achieved the fame she once told her ex-husband was her destiny. Griffith, who was married to Tucker for six years, did not attend her execution. Although Tucker had pleaded to Gov. George W. Bush and the state Board of Pardons and Paroles for mercy, she had also maintained that her gender should not be an issue in deciding clemency. She said she had become a born-again Christian shortly after her arrest in Among those witnessing her death was Richard "Tony" Thornton, the husband of victim Deborah Thornton, who had been angrily outspoken about his desire to see Tucker executed. State prison officials said they were not contacted by any relatives of Jerry Lynn Dean, Tucker's other victim, so no witnesses representing his family were present.

Portrayed by some as the prodigal daughter who finally found peace and redemption in a Harris County Jail cell shortly after her arrest, Tucker and her lawyers for the past several weeks waged a massive legal and international public relations appeal for clemency. Long a self-admitted ham who had always enjoyed mugging for a camera -- even during her wild days as a drug-abusing, motorcycle-riding, hot-headed prostitute -- Tucker, her crime and her punishment have become the conundrum in the debate over capital punishment. While her crime still ranks as one of the grisliest in Houston history, her supporters insisted that her Christian rebirth and her efforts to reach beyond her barred prison cell to warn youngsters of the dangers of her former lifestyle were proof she was no longer a danger to society. But those who insisted she should die have maintained that no matter the sometimes-angelic smiling face and twinkling eyes, no amount of changed personality could overcome the horrific facts of her crime. Tucker and her then-lover Daniel Garrett were condemned by a Houston jury in for the June slaying of Dean, a year-old former cable installer. Dean was hacked more than 20 times with one of his own tools -- a 3-foot-long pickax -- as he lay sleeping in his northeast Houston apartment. The motive, Tucker later explained, was to settle a grudge she had against Dean for once parking his leaking motorcycle in her living room and for destroying the only picture she had of herself with her mother. Also killed was Deborah Thornton, 32, an office worker who had fought with her husband and stormed off, only to meet Dean at a party and go home with him. She was lying in bed with Dean when Tucker and Garrett showed up and began their attack. Thornton was hacked more than 20 times, the pickax left embedded in her chest, but neither Dean nor Garrett was ever tried specifically in Thornton's death. Tucker, who was a year-old divorcee, would later claim that she experienced sexual pleasure every time she plunged the heavy ax into her victims. Garrett, 37, also was sentenced to die for the crime, but he died of liver disease in while awaiting retrial in connection with Dean's death. Tucker testified against Garrett at his trial, and after she did so, Harris County authorities dropped the second murder charge against her in connection with Thornton's slaying. Although she pleaded not guilty, once she was convicted, she never again denied the murders, which she said occurred after a weekend of bingeing on drugs and alcohol. Although she claimed her mother introduced her to drugs and urged her into prostitution, she had said, at least in recent weeks, that she no longer blames her mother.

Her cause also attracted support from around the world, with appeals for clemency from the United Nations and the European Parliament. But given the recent history of the Texas parole board, even a single vote from the member panel in favor of clemency for a condemned murderer would be unusual. Interviews with Tucker have been broadcast on television nationwide, bringing much attention to her plea for mercy.

December 14, - Conjure the image: An attractive, year-old woman is strapped to a gurney in Texas' execution chamber, her dark, shoulder-length curls splayed across the antiseptic white sheet that covers the hard, cold deathbed. Her charcoal-colored eyes are transfixed ethereally while she utters her final entreaty to the God who she says miraculously transformed her in jail. As a lethal cocktail pumps through her veins, she may involuntarily arch upward -- straining against the leather straps -- and gasp or cough a couple of times before her final breath is expelled in a matter of seconds. That, critics contend, is an image that will haunt Texans if Karla Faye Tucker, a condemned killer from Houston, is executed early next year. Contrast that mental portrait of Tucker with the one that state's attorneys, victims' rights groups and others say should be replayed in people's minds: A wild-eyed, year-old prostitute -- after a weekend orgy of methadone, heroin, Dilaudid, Valium, Placidyls, Somas, Wygesics, Percodan, Mandrax, marijuana, rum and tequila -- smiles maniacally at year-old Jerry Lynn Dean. It ticked her off that he once parked his oil-leaking motorcycle in her living room. She takes her first swing with a pickax. Flesh tears. Blood spurts. Bones crack as the 3-foot-long tool thuds first against Dean and later against his companion, year-old Deborah Thornton. By the time the screams end, Tucker and her accomplice will have hacked their victims more than 20 times. The June murder was one of the grisliest in Houston history, and Tucker could well become the first woman to be executed in Texas since the s. Her accomplice, Daniel Ryan Garrett, also was sentenced to die for his part in the crime. His case was sent back for retrial on appeal, but he died of liver disease in while waiting for a new trial, still behind bars. In a state with the most active execution chamber in the nation -- 37 death sentences have been carried out this year alone and since -- Tucker's case is likely to bring unprecedented scrutiny on Texas and, at least temporarily, refuel the debate over capital punishment. Already, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has been besieged by requests from media around the world wanting to interview the woman who once bragged to her sister that she was sexually gratified each time she axed her victims. Death penalty opponents, religious leaders and thousands of other people -- mostly outside Texas -- are expected to mount an intense campaign in the coming weeks to try to persuade Gov. Bush to commute Tucker's sentence to life imprisonment. Democrat Garry Mauro -- who is challenging Bush's re-election bid -- said he's glad he does not have to face the issue. It's a tough issue. I wish him well on coming to a resolution on it. Televangelist Pat Robertson told 60 Minutes in a recent interview that Tucker has his support and that if Bush "lets this sweet woman of God die, he's a man who shows no mercy. Texas Christian Coalition President Dick Weinhold said he not only personally disagrees with Robertson but knows of no organized effort to spare Tucker's life. She seems to have strong testimony. Her salvation and conversion seem to be And her life seems to really have undergone a transformation. So I'm delighted. That is great. There were two individuals that were murdered. The consequences of her crime call for her death. I don't believe the compassion side should overrule the consequences in this case. But I think there's still consequences for our actions. Dudley Sharp of the Houston-based victims' rights group Justice for All said he expects "religious leaders from all over the world -- not just the pope -- will be putting pressure on the governor" to spare Tucker's life. For clues about how the coming weeks might play in Texas, rewind to North Carolina, It was there that "Death Row Granny" Margie Velma Barfield, a born-again Christian who was posthumously praised by Billy Graham for her impact on other prisoners, became the first woman to be put to death in the modern era of the capital punishment. The portly, bespectacled year-old private nurse and former Sunday school teacher was convicted of lacing her boyfriend's food with rat poison. She later admitted to poisoning three others, including her mother. Her case also became a last-minute political issue in a tough U. Senate election in which liberal Democrat Gov. Jim Hunt challenged Republican incumbent Sen. Jesse Helms. Political analysts said Hunt was doomed to be hurt politically regardless of what he did. Had he commuted Barfield's sentence, he risked alienating his conservative pro-death penalty constituency. Some analysts said at the time that his refusal to show compassion toward the woman may have persuaded liberal, anti-death penalty voters to stay away from the polls. Joe Freeman Britt, the former prosecutor who sent Barfield to death row, remembers the pressure that mounted in North Carolina. That then generated a certain political pressure in the case. But unlike Tucker's jailhouse conversion, Britt said, Barfield had always professed to being a God-fearing, church-going woman. He said Barfield bolstered her image as a devout Christian by asking her employers -- the families who hired her to care for ailing, elderly relatives whom she later poisoned -- for Wednesday nights and Sundays off so she could go to church. Once imprisoned she, too, began leading Bible studies and counseling troubled female felons. She also uttered a deathbed apology. The image the media portrayed most often was that of a grandmother kneeling in prayer in prison, Britt added, and some of the victims' relatives had a difficult time believing she was capable of the crimes. Britt, however, said he was unfazed by arguments that Barfield should not be executed because of her Christianity -- a claim of which he was skeptical. I hope it's true. I hope they do that. And if Tucker has had this experience, that's wonderful. It prepares her better for the judgment under the law. Although death penalty opponents had predicted a public outrage if North Carolina proceeded with the execution of Barfield, Britt said that never materialized. One key difference between Tucker's and Barfield's cases is the commutation process. While North Carolina law allows its governor wide discretion in determining whether and when to pardon felons or reduce their sentences, the Texas Constitution allows a governor to take such action only if the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles first recommends it. And even if the board does, the governor may still reject a commutation. Additionally, the state constitution allows the governor to grant a one-time, day delay in an execution. Bush has never granted a day reprieve, but his predecessor, Democrat Ann Richards, did so twice. Tucker has not yet filed a petition for a reprieve or commutation with the parole board, but her attorney said he plans to ask the governor to commute her sentence. A Jan. In interviews with the Chronicle last week, several of the 18 parole board members indicate Tucker will have a tough time convincing them that her death sentence should not be carried out. Any pleas Tucker might make based on her turning her life over to God apparently will not carry much weight with some parole board members. Male convicts have raised the issue before and been rejected. Gwynne Austin. January 19, Karla Faye Tucker is the nicest woman on death row. She is so nice, in fact, and so well liked by people who know her that it is virtually impossible to look at this attractive, sweet-natured, born-again Christian and imagine the gruesome crime to which she confessed in Houston, Texas, on June 13, Back then she was a drug-addicted prostitute who, during a weekend orgy with her boyfriend, had consumed an astonishing quantity of heroin, Valium, speed, percodan, mandrax, marijuana, dilaudid, methadone, tequila and rum. The two then took a pickax and hacked to death Jerry Lynn Dean, 27, her ex-lover, and Deborah Thornton, 32, his companion of the moment, while they slept. Tucker, who left the pickax embedded in Thornton's chest, boasted at her trial that she had experienced an orgasm with each swing of the ax. She was convicted in and sentenced to death. Fourteen years later, in the state with the busiest execution chamber in the land, Tucker now finds herself next in line to die. Barring a last-minute delay or commutation, on Feb. If that happens, she will become the first woman executed in Texas since Chipita Rodriguez was hanged in for killing a horse trader--and the first woman in the U. There is no doubt that Tucker is guilty. She says so herself. What makes her case striking is not just her gender but also her apparently profound conversion to Christianity. The latter has prompted an unlikely cohort of supporters to come to her defense at the 11th hour, including Deborah Thornton's brother and Jerry Lynn Dean's sister, the homicide detective who put her on death row, several former prosecutors, televangelist Pat Robertson and thousands of citizens. Her staunchest supporter is Dana Brown, the prison chaplain she met and married two years ago--a relationship that has never been consummated, even by a kiss, because death-row inmates are not allowed contact with visitors. Says Tucker's attorney, George "Mac" Secrest: Skeptics respond that jailhouse conversions are both commonplace and not relevant in deciding who receives a pardon. Bush, who must concur for a sentence to be commuted, will block her execution. Bush, a law-and-order Republican facing a re-election campaign this year, would seem to gain little politically by such a move. Moreover, there simply are not the requisite legal questions or doubts about her guilt that might prompt commutation. Pardon has never been given to anyone in Texas based on religious conversion. None of which will make it any easier to watch the pleasant, earnestly friendly Tucker become the th person killed since Texas resumed the death penalty in She has said repeatedly in interviews that she is "far removed" from the person who committed the crime. But she is the person almost certain to die for it. A group of Texans opposed to the death penalty joined with a Danish human rights group Monday to release new stamps commemorating Karla Faye Tucker, the first woman executed in Texas since The stamps, which cannot be used to mail letters or packages, are similar in function to Easter Seals. Tucker have been made in the hope they will remind you of a human being killed by the state of Texas," said Karen Grue of the Denmark-based group Living Artists, which designed the stamps. There are two designs, both featuring the same face of a smiling Tucker. In one, she appears in front of a prison gurney similar to the one on which she was executed on Feb. On the other stamp, she appears opposite an American flag with an oil rig in the background. The stamps, intended to put a human face on those executed, are being distributed locally by the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and overseas by Amnesty International's office in Copenhagen. The president of Justice For All, a local victim's rights group, called the stamps a poorly conceived idea. The work would have been closer to the truth if it had included a pickax and a great deal of blood. Texas v. Karla Faye Tucker - Background Report: A Question of Mercy. Should Karla Faye Tucker die? Bush faced in the weeks leading up to Tucker's execution. However, on February 3, , Gov. Bush and the Texas Board of Pardons answered that question when Tucker was executed by lethal injection. In , Tucker was convicted of the brutal murders of her ex-lover, Jerry Lynn Dean, and his companion, Deborah Thornton and sentenced to the death penalty. During her trial, Tucker admitted that on June 13, , she and her boyfriend at the time, Daniel Ryan Garrett, took a pickax and hacked Dean and Thornton to death while they were sleeping. Garrett was also convicted of murder and sentenced to the death penalty. However, he died of liver disease while in prison in At the murder scene, investigators found the pickax still embedded in Thornton's chest. Tucker even boasted at her trial that she experienced an orgasm each time she plunged the ax down upon her victims. Back then, Tucker was a drug addict and prostitute who seemed unrepentant, and even proud, of her actions. In various pleas to save her life, Tucker's supporters and lawyer claimed that Tucker, 38, was not the same woman who committed those brutal murders nearly 15 years ago. She was a born-again Christian, and with her "girl-next-door" attractiveness, sometimes it may seem hard to believe that she could have committed such gruesome murders. But Tucker and her lawyer, David Botsford, freely admitted her guilt. Because of her conversion to Christianity, apparent rehabilitation and virtually spotless disciplinary record while in prison, Botsford and other supporters believed that Tucker should be spared the death penalty. Tucker's detractors said that religious conversions for inmates are common and are not a legitimate basis for a pardon from the death penalty. On January 20, , attorneys for Tucker filed a petition to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and state district court in Houston to postpone Tucker's execution so that they could have more time to challenge the constitutionality of the state's clemency procedure. In the page court document, Tucker's lawyers reportedly stressed that Tucker was fully rehabilitated and demonstrated during her year imprisonment that she posed no future threat to society. In seeking a pardon from the death penalty, Tucker asked that her sentence be reduced to life imprisonment. Under that sentence, Tucker would have been eligible for parole in Reportedly, Tucker's petition was also accompanied by approximately pages of exhibits supporting her plea. Among the exhibits was a Tucker wrote to Gov. Bush and members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, telling them that her crime was "the most horrible nightmare of my life" and that she is no longer a threat to society. According to court papers, Tucker and Garrett killed Jerry Lynn Dean and Deborah Thornton when they broke into Dean's apartment to steal motorcycle parts. Garrett was surprised to find Dean home, asleep in his bed, and proceeded to beat him over the head with a hammer. Tucker then struck Dean with a three-foot ax more than 20 times to stop the gurgling sound he was making. Seeing that Thornton was under the bedsheets next to Dean, Tucker then turned the ax on her. A pardon from a death sentence in Texas reportedly has never been granted to anyone based on a religious conversion. And of the 36 pardons that have been granted to Texas death-row inmates since , not one has been granted solely for humanitarian reasons. In addition, Gov. Bush, who would have had to approve the pardon with a majority vote by the parole board, publicly said that in evaluating Tucker's case, he would only consider whether there was any doubt she committed the crime and whether she had a fair trial. Karla Faye Tucker's case attracted a group of supporters that include Rev. Pat Robertson, the homicide detective who recommended that she get the death penalty in the first place, thousands of citizens, and even some support from her victims' siblings. Tucker married a prison chaplain, Dana Brown, two years ago, and he remained by her side until her execution. Tucker was the first woman executed in the United States since , coincidentally the year of her conviction. Karla Faye Tucker's appeal to halt her execution was rejected by the Texas Criminal Court of Appeals on January 28, , less than a week before her scheduled execution. Tucker's lawyers had argued Texas's procedure for commuting death sentences, claiming that the law provides no guidelines for parole board members in considering clemency for death row inmates. The following week, on February 2, the eve of Tucker's scheduled execution , the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, which could have recommend a pardon for Tucker to Gov. George Bush, rejected her request to have her death sentence changed to life in prison. On February 3, Tucker's last chance to avoid the death penalty lied with the U. Supreme Court, which considered her petition for a stay of the execution. But the Supreme Court denied the request, clearing the way for Tucker's execution later that day. Her death breaks with traditional queasiness over such punishment for female criminals. Legal scholars say fewer women are given capital sentences because they are less likely to kill. Williams, Los Angeles Times. Virginia put to death a year-old woman Thursday night, the first execution of a female in the country in five years and the first in that state for nearly a century. The lethal-injection death of Teresa Lewis, convicted of the contract killing of her husband and stepson, broke with a tradition of societal "queasiness" about executing women, one legal expert said. It could also psychologically clear the way to carrying out death sentences on others among the 60 condemned women in the nation — including 18 in California, according to some capital punishment observers. Lewis' death sentence was only the 12th carried out against a woman prisoner in the 34 years since capital punishment was restored as a sentencing option. In that same period, 1, men have been put to death. Legal scholars attribute the "gender bias" in executions to women's lower propensity to kill and the tendency of those who do to kill a husband, lover or child in the heat of emotion, seldom with the "aggravating factors" states require for a death sentence. They make it a worse crime if a homicide is committed during a felony, like robbery or rape, which are rarely involved in women's homicides," said Victor Streib, a Northern Ohio University law professor who has spent 30 years researching condemned women. Still, Streib added, "there are some cases that can't be explained by anything except a queasiness at executing women. We just seem to be reluctant to do that. Lewis was the first woman to be executed in Virginia since , when a year-old African American maid named Virginia Christian was sent to the electric chair for killing her employer after being accused of stealing a locket. Lewis was the only woman on death row in a state that is second in the number of executions since , with compared with Texas' Texas carried out the last female execution in the United States on Sept. Frances Newton was put to death by lethal injection for the murders of her husband and two children. She is also acknowledged to have been responsible for the death of her boyfriend Bobby Joe Morris in Colorado; however, by the time authorities made the connection between Buenoano and Morris, she had already been sentenced to death in the state of Florida. She is also believed to have been involved in a murder in Alabama; on his deathbed, Bobby Joe Morris confessed to having participated in that murder, but police were unable to find enough evidence to press charges. She was also suspected in the death of her boyfriend Gerald Dossett. After her arrest, Dossett's body was exhumed and analysed for signs of arsenic poisoning. No charges were laid in that case. However, his death was initially believed to be due to natural causes. In , she moved in with Bobby Joe Morris? In , Buenoano took Michael out in a canoe ; the canoe rolled, and Michael, weighed down by his arm and leg braces, drowned. In , Buenoano was engaged to John Gentry. While he was recovering from his injuries, police began to find several discrepancies in Buenoano's background; further investigation revealed that, in November , she had begun telling her friends that Gentry was suffering from a terminal illness. In , Buenoano was convicted for the murders of Michael and James Goodyear, and in she was convicted for the attempted murder of John Gentry. She received a twelve-year sentence for the Gentry case, a life sentence for the Michael Goodyear case, and a death sentence for the James Goodyear case. Top Stories.

Laura let out a sigh of relief. She was then told that she would be hung. The chief execution technician had decided that this would produce the longest possible execution for her, at an estimated 19 minutes 30 seconds. Once the way in which she would die was announced, the guards began to set up for her hanging. A box was placed under her feet, allowing her to stand, but only barely. There was another rope attached to the box, presumably so she could be autonomously executed without anyone else in the room. Her hands were released from the ropes above her head and handcuffed behind her back, but not after a noose was wrapped around her neck. After five more minutes of preparation, the guards left the room and Laura was left alone. For a while she stood in silence, shivering at the thought of her own impending death. Finally, after several more minutes, the TV came on. She had seen the execution show before and knew what to expect from the commentators. They began by talking about the subject and making bets on how long she would last. She would be suspended by the neck roughly a foot off the ground until she suffocated. They told the audience that it was likely that she would urinate during the process. For some women that meant they had died, for others, it was simply a reflex from suffocation.

The box beneath her feet was violently removed and Laura was left dangling by her neck. She tried to yell for help but only emitted a faint gurgle.

It remained there until the room was dismantled in A "blonde night-club hostess" was much more alluring than "a grey-haired and bewildered grandmother who spoke no English. In the prison underwent an extensive programme of rebuilding, during which the bodies of all the executed women were exhumed. In , at the age of fifteen, she met Percy Thompson, three years her elder, and after a six-year engagement they were married in The year-old Edith was immediately attracted to the year-old Bywaters, who was handsome and impulsive and whose stories of his travels around the world excited Edith's love of romantic adventure. To Edith, the youthful Bywaters represented her romantic ideal; by comparison, year-old Percy seemed staid and conventional. Upon their return, Percy invited Bywaters to lodge with them. Soon after, Edith and Bywaters began an affair which Percy discovered. He confronted the pair. A quarrel broke out and when Bywaters demanded that Percy divorce Edith, Percy ordered him from the house. Edith later described a violent confrontation with her husband after Bywaters left, and said that her husband struck her several times and threw her across the room. From September until September , Bywaters was at sea, and during this time Edith Thompson wrote to him frequently. Upon his return, they met again. After a violent struggle, during which Edith Thompson was also knocked to the ground, Percy was stabbed. Mortally wounded, he died before Edith could summon help. The attacker fled. At the police station she appeared distressed and confided to police that she knew who the killer was, and named Freddy Bywaters. Believing herself to be a witness, rather than an accomplice, Thompson provided them with details of her association with Bywaters. They were each charged with murder. Bywaters co-operated completely. The love letters were produced as evidence. In these Edith Thompson passionately declared her love for Bywaters, and her desire to be free of Percy. She said in her letters that she had ground a glass light bulb to shards and had fed them to Percy mixed into mashed potato, and on another had fed him poison. By this time Thompson seemed to be enjoying the publicity she was attracting and insisted that she would take the stand. Her demeanour was variously flirtatious, self-pitying and melodramatic and she made a poor impression on the judge and the jury, particularly when she contradicted herself. She had claimed that she had never poisoned her husband, and references in her letters to attempting to kill him were merely attempts to impress her paramour. Bywaters stated that Edith Thompson had known nothing of his plans for the simple reason that he had not intended to murder Percy Thompson. His aim had been to confront him, and force him to deal with the situation, and when Thompson had reacted in a superior manner, Bywaters had lost his temper. Edith Thompson, he repeatedly stated, had made no suggestion to him to kill Percy, nor did she know that Bywaters intended to confront him. In discussing the letters, Bywaters stated that he had never believed Edith had attempted to harm her husband, but that he believed she had a vivid imagination, fuelled by the novels she enjoyed reading, and in her letters she viewed herself in some way as one of these fictional characters. Before and during the trial, Thompson and Bywaters were the subjects of highly sensationalist and critical media commentary. However, after they had been sentenced to death there was a dramatic shift in public attitudes and in the media coverage. Almost one million people signed a petition against the imposed death sentences. Bywaters attracted admiration for his fierce loyalty and protectiveness towards Thompson. Thompson was regarded as a foolish woman, but attracted sympathy because it was generally considered abhorrent to hang a woman — no woman had been executed in Britain since Thompson herself stated that she would not hang, and when her parents were allowed to visit her she urged her father to simply take her home. A few days before their executions, Thompson was told that the date of execution had been fixed, at which point she lost her composure. She spent the last few days of her life in a state of near hysteria, crying, screaming, moaning, and unable to eat. On the morning of her execution she was heavily sedated, but remained in an agitated state. The two executions occurred simultaneously at 9. Later, as was the rule, the bodies of Thompson and Bywaters were buried within the walls of the prisons in which they had been executed. All women hanged in Britain after Thompson were required to wear special knickers made of canvas which would prevent a recurrence of the massive bleeding suffered by Thompson. Edith Thompson was one of only seventeen women hanged in the United Kingdom during the 20th century. The main basis for this argument is that there was no evidence that Edith was party to arranging the murder on the night in question, but the issue is bound up with his perception of what it means to be "principal to murder in the second degree" i. As to her character, the trial Judge, Mr. The former labelled her as an adulterer, deceitful and wicked and, by implication, easily capable of murder. In his summing up, he had said of Edith "This is not an ordinary charge of murder Am I right or wrong in saying that this woman is one of the most extraordinary personalities that you or I have ever met? Have you ever read Such things have been very seldom put by pen upon paper. This is the woman you have to deal with, not some ordinary woman. She is one of those striking personalities met with from time to time who stand out for some reason or another You are men of the world and you must know that where there is a liaison which includes some one who is married, it will be part of the desire of that person to keep secret the relations from the other partner. It is not the sort of thing that they would bring to the knowledge of their partner for life. Bywaters as a woman capable of doing anything - even murder - to keep his love? She had to: Bywaters wanted to get away from her. That was a true and appropriate description. Weis seeks to draw attention to what he considers to be the inappropriateness of the Victorian morality of Mr. Justice Shearman KC to the era of the s. However Young, writing contemporaneously with the trial, suggests that it was the young of that generation who needed to learn morality: Justice Shearman frequently referred to Bywaters as "the adulterer," apparently quite unconscious of tho fact that, to people of Bywaters' generation, educated in the ethics of dear labour and cheap pleasure, of commercial sport and the dancing hall, adultery is merely a quaint ecclesiastical term for what seems to them the great romantic adventure of their lives. Adultery to such people may or may not be "sporting," but its wrongness is not a matter that would trouble them for a moment. Sinai, for them, is wrapped in impenetrable cloud. Weis's legal criticisms are better argued by Broad below , but both raise the same perennial objection to the fairness of Edith's conviction that there was no direct evidence of the involvement of Edith in the planning the murder, or that she had even consented to its commission on the night in question. The deficit in evidence as to direct arrangement was conceded by the Court of Appeal. However it pursued a line of reasoning to the effect that proof of instigation of murder in a community of purpose without evidence of rebuttal raises an "inference of preconcerted arrangement". The Court of Appeal held that her earlier prolonged incitement to murder revealed in her letters, combined with her extraordinary catalogue of lies about what happened on the night of the murder told to several witnesses, up until her second witness statement, which was open to being found untrustworthy, her meetings with Bywaters on the day of the murder, and the content of her last letter, was sufficient to convict her of arranging the murder. The Court of Appeal seemed to take a narrower approach to "principal in the second degree" than the Court, but it is unclear, because "preconcerted arrangement" admits of different shades of meaning. The Court of Appeal seemed determined to forestall any argument based on the mere method or timing of the murder being unagreed to, if there was other plausible evidence of a preconcerted object of murder. Its narrow judgment is unsatisfactory to those who now allege Edith played no part in the murder itself. However its judgement is limited in extent to the point it was addressing, which was continuity of purpose up until the commission of the murder. If non-agreement as to the means and timing of the murder be conceded, there was merit to its claim that the case "exhibits from beginning to end no redeeming feature. The compact that they had admitted between themselves was one of "culpable intimacy. Everything pointed to Edith desiring the death of her husband over an extended period, to the day of the murder itself, as evidenced by her ridiculous cover for Bywaters after the commission of the murder. What substantive evidence had the Defence put forward to deny her guilt besides her cry "Don't Don't! One might reasonably posit Edith to have been in some kind of semi-hypnotic trance cast by Bywaters's malevolent spell, that she was unable ever to free herself from. He appeared to maintain her innocence of murder throughout his life, claiming that Edith "paid the extreme penalty for her immorality. Curtis-Bennett said to Mr. Stanley Bishop, a journalist, "She spoiled her chances by her evidence and by her demeanour. I had a perfect answer to everything which I am sure would have won an acquittal if she had not been a witness. She was a vain woman and an obstinate one. She had an idea that she could carry the jury. Also she realized the enormous public interest, and decided to play up to it by entering the witness-box. Her imagination was highly developed, but it failed to show her the mistake she was making. Curtis-Bennet argued a more legally sure but evidentially bankrupt defence based on Edith acting the part of poisoner, or engaging in a fantasy. Yet she seemed to nullify this by her evidence of reacting to Bywater's suggestions. One of her main lines of defence, that she was constantly seeking a divorce or separation from her husband, and that it rather than murder was the main object of the attested five-year compact between her and Bywaters shown in her letters, was dismissed by the Judge as a sham. Curtis-Bennet's linking of the innocence of Edith to that of Bywaters at the end of his closing speech disclosed the dire straits to which Edith's defence had sunk. Young avers that the Defence used the wrong tactics. He said: Thompson, 'I did not murder Percy Thompson, I had nothing to do with it. I had no knowledge of it, and I was stunned and horrified when it took place, and I defy the prosecution to introduce any evidence with which that denial is not absolutely compatible," and had rested on that, I do not think you could have found a British jury to convict her. However Young's point, that the burden of proof was on the Crown, to prove murder, rather than on the Defence to rebut a presumption of murder, is certainly a valid one. A criticism can be made of the Court and also the Court of Appeal that it did not define "principal in the second degree" sufficiently precisely to give its critics confidence in the proper administration of justice, especially given that this was a capital case. The contention of the Crown was wide: Thompson, or that, if there was not an actual agreement in terms, there was an instigation by Mrs. Thompson to get rid of him, on which Bywaters acted so as to kill him. This does not seem to have been objected to by the Judge, who averred:. I quite accept the law of the learned Solicitor-General that if you hire an assassin amd say: I also accept the proposition that if a woman says to a man, 'I want this man murdered; you promise me to do it,' and he then promises her she believing that he is going to keep his promise as soon as he gets an opportunity and goes out and murders someone, then she also is guilty of murder. A five-year compact between Edith and Bywaters was shown to have lasted throughout the entire course of their exchange of letters up until the date of the murder. It was obvious that if only one of its aims had been the death of Percy Thompson, which seemed tolerably plain from the letters, and from Edith's persistent lying on the night of the murder, and her subsequent false witness statement s , then on the above definition of "principal in the second degree" as no more than as instigator in a community of purpose, Edith would be found guilty. This was presumably the basis on which the Jury's decision rested. It is difficult to see how the Jury could have arrived at any other conclusion. The Judge, Mr. Justice Shearman KC, placed much weight on inconsistencies in her evidence, particularly her statements to the police concerning the night of the murder that suggested she had intended to conceal her witness of the crime, and perhaps conversations of criminal intent with Bywaters preceding it, although she always vigorously denied foreknowledge of it. The Defence did succeed in some points, showing that guesswork by the prosecution over ambiguous content of some of the letters was fanciful and wrong. That her letters did not necessarily reflect her deeds in respect of the so-termed poison plots was fairly clear. The impending crime of Bywaters is seen in the morbid and almost demented possessiveness of his last letters to Edith. The entire folio of letters was later published by Filson Young in Notable British Trials Series in , although the letters are not in any kind of chronological order, for which see Stuart Broad below. Edgar Lustgarten, "Verdict in Dispute," , states on p. She had intelligence, vitality, a natural grace and poise, sensitiveness, humour and illumining all these that quintessential femininity that fascinates the male. That might make her an accessory after the fact. It could not bring her into danger of the rope. A critique of the conduct of her trial and the state of the law was made by Stuart Broad. He also attacked the Judge for using morally prejudiced language to incite the prejudice of the Jury. He concedes that it was within the rules for the Jury to decide what the words in Edith's letters meant and what was intended by them. Broad went on to attack the general conduct of the trial [46]:. She should have been granted a separate trial in that she was handicapped by having to appear alongside Bywaters. The Judge allowed the Jury to be inflamed by prejudice on account of her immorality. Suspicion based on prejudice was allowed to take the place of proof of meaning, motive and intention in respect of her letters. Broad also levels criticism against the prosecution for the unfair use of her letters at trial, covering such matters as:. The new grave in plot remained unmarked for over twenty years. Her death was a legal formality'. The names of the other three women are inscribed around the edges of the tombstone. Avis Graydon died in , without ever knowing that her sister had been reburied in Brookwood, thus she never had the opportunity either to visit the grave or to erect some form of memorial over it. The clients, judging from the witness accounts, were mostly servants from local houses who had become pregnant, and who had employers who were keen for the matter to be resolved discreetly. An unknown number of babies were murdered this way, possibly dozens. Little is known about Annie Walters, but Sach's background is well-documented: She was the fourth child of ten and had three sisters. She married a builder called Jeffrey Sach in Sach was active long before she engaged Walters. She lied about her age — she was 32, not Walters' background is unknown, but she had been married. She seems to have had a drinking problem and she would periodically advertise herself as a sick nurse. On her arrest she was determined to be "feeble", that is to say, feeble-minded. There is a small possibility that the pair may have been involved in an earlier homicide that resulted in another woman being executed. Circumstantial evidence suggested that Louise was the murderer, and the killing was to be rid of a supposed encumbrance due to her wanting to marry a man named Lucas. However, in her claims of innocence, Louise said she had taken Manfred out of the care of one woman to give him to two ladies she met who had an establishment for the care of growing children. The police claimed they made some effort in looking for the two women, but the extent of their investigation is unknown. In any event, Louise Masset was tried and convicted of the murder and, despite a petition for mercy, was executed in early January With the exception of Ruth Ellis , the remains of the four other women executed at Holloway i. The grave is marked with a horizontally laid grey granite tombstone, and the names of all the occupants are engraved on it. Some time after the trial of Sach and Walters, the building had its name chiselled off the stone plaque above the window and is now anonymous. On Feb. Later that night, she attacked her husband with an axe, seriously injuring him. She was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. On the night of March 20, , after Gov. It wrote: Her thin lips merely tightened. Warden Sage reported to his superiors: There was no revolting feature. Historically, women have always had to do something particularly awful to be convicted of a serious crime, and to sentence a woman to death — oh! Especially when the female in question was good looking. One of the most beautiful, indeed absolutely stunning women ever convicted of murder and sentenced to death in the United States of America was a gal by the name of Toni Jo Henry. And she was a looker. Nearly every description ever printed of her focused on her eyes. After three trials, three convictions, and three pronouncements of the awful sentence, she probably expected to die. But still she was light-hearted about it. Have you any idea how much talent is being wasted here today? It was one of many jokes she cracked as she waited for the phone to ring, chain-smoking and making small talk. Her real name was Annie Beatrice, but that was a little too frou-frou for a girl whose mother died when she was four. Raised by an aunt, she dropped out of grade school and started running away and ramming the roads when she was a teenager. Cowboy called her a swell kid. He got her off cocaine. He said he loved her, and so she married him. But even when they met, he was on bond for a murder charge for the murder of a police officer. After they were married, Cowboy drew 50 years for murder and went to the big house in Huntsville. Toni Jo went crazy and vowed that the law could not come between them. Like steal some guns and ammo. Like set off on foot to get from Louisiana to Texas with some wiry good-for-nothing half-boyfriend slash accomplice in tow, a punk named Harold Finnon Burkes. Like pull a pistol on some traveling salesman dumb enough to stop to give you both a ride. Like make the poor automobile owner strip naked and beg for his life before you shoot him. After Toni Jo murdered J. That, of course, turned out to be a big mistake, because he was a rat, and before she knew it she was in a jail cell. So she did, admitting they bumped the guy off. Toni Jo Henry went on trial in Lake Charles, where her reputation preceded her. The flashbulbs sometimes drowned out the arguments of counsel. And all in attendance let their wishes be known. During the trial various audience members made the hanging sign by drawing their fingers across their throats while looking at the jurors. Henry , the Supreme Court of Louisiana said:. The populace clamored for the death penalty. They demanded the life of the accused and clearly manifested their desires to the jury by signs and gestures which could not be misunderstood. The trial was attended by throngs. Hundreds more than could be seated crowded into the courthouse. The courtroom was literally packed and jammed with spectators. The judge says that more than either stood or were seated within the railing which separated his stand from the space reserved for spectators. The record clearly shows that they were present not merely through interest, but for the purpose of letting it be known that they demanded the death penalty…. She got a new trial. The same result followed, so they gave her a third trial. But they ran out of excuses and finally set a date in for Toni Jo to sit in the Chair. Cowboy escaped from a prison farm a few days before she was supposed to be electrocuted in a desperate effort to reach her; he was captured two days later. That guy is the king of my heart. He gave me a home and he got that drug monkey off my back. He thought I just smoked marijuana and grinned. But when I told him my train went a lot further than marijuana he took me to a hotel room and I lay there in bed for a week and he would come in now and then and ask me how I was doing. You feel so out of it. The reporter asked about the man she killed, the man who left behind a wife and daughter. Toni Jo said her dying wish was to talk to Cowboy, and though it violated the rules, they let her call him. She did all the talking and he did all the crying. Toni Jo hung up after the call with Cowboy. Toni Jo promised to go quietly, except she squawked when they shaved her head. They promised to hunt up a scarf for her to put over her bald head, knowing the photographers were lined up outside to see her taken to the death room. One of those photos, at right, shows her jailer looking more sad than Toni Jo. Toni Jo Henry was electrocuted November 28, The wire services all reported that Cowboy Henry screamed and thrashed and destroyed his cell in his grief. In a final awful coda, Cowboy was released from prison a handful of years after his wife's execution. The decade didn't end before Cowboy Henry was shot and killed and raced into the dark to be with his bad girl from the bayou. At her trial she claimed that he had imprisoned and threatened to shoot her should she attempt to leave, whereupon she took his gun and shot him. Baker was the only woman to be executed by electrocution in Georgia. She was granted a full and unconditional pardon by the State of Georgia in , 60 years after her execution. Her mother, Queenie, worked for a farmer named J. The all-white male jury convicted her by the end of the afternoon. Her court-appointed counsel, W. Baker was transferred to Reidsville State Prison on February 23, Where I was I could not overcome it. God has forgiven me. I have nothing against anyone. I picked cotton for Mr. Pritchett, and he has been good to me. I am ready to go. I am one in the number. I am ready to meet my God. I have a very strong conscience. Since her pardoning a simple head stone has been placed above her grave. Velma Margie Barfield's Gateway to Heaven: Velma Barfield was a year-old grandmother and serial poisoner who used arsenic as her weapon. She was also the first woman executed after the death penalty was reinstituted in in North Carolina and the first woman to die by lethal injection. Velma Margie Barfield - Her Childhood: The gates swung open, admitting the van within the compound. The van pulled up to a large concrete building and Laura was pulled from the vehicle. A black hood was immediately drawn over her head, concealing part of her long, silky, brown hair. After being escorted down a maze of halls, she finally reached the cell assigned to her. Once the hood was removed, she could see up and down the hall, lined with hundreds of occupied cells. Each cell contained a young lady, much like herself. They were all naked, officially to prevent them from concealing any weapons or tools to escape, but unofficially, it was to acclimate them to public nudity, for they would be unclad during their executions. A guard followed her in and ordered her to face the wall. Laura had not the slightest clue as to what that might be, but she was certain it was not to be pleasant. The next day Laura awoke to a loud banging on her cell door. A single guard opened it and ordered her to stand up. He then proceeded to handcuff her and lead her down the long hallway. Laura saw that everyone's eyes were following her with a look of pity and terror. As Laura and her escort got closer to their destination, she could hear muffled screams of agony. They became louder the longer the pair walked. Finally, they reached an unoccupied room. Laura was forced inside and forced to lay on her back on the metal table in the center of the room. Her hands and ankles were restrained to the table by metal rings protruding from it. A different guard approached her and began to speak. This is not your execution. At this time, you will be subjected to pain in order to prepare you for your execution..

The underofficer in charge had moved to a position where from the corners of their eyes they could see him. His sword was extended in the air.

It dropped. The sun - by this time Erotic execution photos - flashed on the burnished blade as it described an arc in falling.

The Court denied certiorari on December 8, Johnson, S. On December 18, , the convicting court scheduled Tucker's execution for February 3, On January 20, , Tucker filed a successive state writ application and request for stay of execution in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. The Court of Criminal Appeals dismissed the application as an abuse of the writ pursuant to Article Tucker's petition for writ of certiorari, filed in the U. Supreme Court on January 29, , was denied by the court on February 3, Tucker's request for clemency was filed with the Board of Pardons and Paroles on January 22, , and was denied on February 2, Also on February 2, , Tucker filed a 21 U. The request for stay was denied in the federal district court case, and the 5th Circuit action was also denied. On February 3, , Tucker filed a third writ of certiorari in the U. Supreme Court, which is still pending. However, the state did present evidence at the punishment phase concerning Tucker's prior violent acts, which included a previous altercation with Dean during which she punched him in the face while he had glasses on, forcing him to go to the hospital to have glass removed from his eye. Tucker also admitted a history of drug use and prostitution. Houston Chronicle. February 3, Apologizing to the family members of her victims, Tucker smiled and told her friends and relatives, "I love all of you very much. I'm going to be face to face with Jesus now. Tucker, who confessed her guilt in the slayings of a man and woman in Houston 15 years ago, was pronounced dead at 6: She was the first woman to be executed in Texas since and only the second nationally since She also was the first Texas prisoner to be executed this year. Tucker went to her death in a frenzy of media coverage, with an estimated reporters from around the world posted outside the state prison system's Walls Unit in downtown Huntsville. A few hundred capital punishment abolitionists stood vigil in protest while death penalty advocates sparred verbally with them. It was in the final months leading up to her death that Tucker achieved the fame she once told her ex-husband was her destiny. Griffith, who was married to Tucker for six years, did not attend her execution. Although Tucker had pleaded to Gov. George W. Bush and the state Board of Pardons and Paroles for mercy, she had also maintained that her gender should not be an issue in deciding clemency. She said she had become a born-again Christian shortly after her arrest in Among those witnessing her death was Richard "Tony" Thornton, the husband of victim Deborah Thornton, who had been angrily outspoken about his desire to see Tucker executed. State prison officials said they were not contacted by any relatives of Jerry Lynn Dean, Tucker's other victim, so no witnesses representing his family were present. She's all yours," Thornton said as Tucker's injection began. Sitting in a wheelchair, the disabled Thornton was at eye level with Tucker, lying strapped to the gurney. At one point, Thornton referred to Tucker's current husband, a prison minister and car dealer, and remarked, "So now Dana Brown gets to write his book. Brown, who married Tucker three years ago, said he had not decided where she will be buried. Her body was taken to an undisclosed funeral home. Even though she cried out for forgiveness, God gave her just what she needed. That was love. Who are we to say when a person is past redemption? And that's what we're saying when we kill people, human beings. The final roadblocks to Tucker's execution were cleared about 6: His decision was not unexpected. She was convicted and sentenced by a jury of her peers," Bush said, reading a statement at the Capitol. The courts, including the United States Supreme Court, have reviewed the legal issues in this case, and therefore, I will not grant a day delay. Supreme Court rejected three challenges to Tucker's death sentence under criminal and federal civil rights laws. There was no dissent and no comment by the justices. In addition, the 5th U. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans turned away her attorneys' efforts to start another round of federal challenges. State courts also rejected her contention that the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles violated the state's Open Meetings Act by not holding a public hearing or public vote in her clemency appeal. Portrayed by some as the prodigal daughter who finally found peace and redemption in a Harris County Jail cell shortly after her arrest, Tucker and her lawyers for the past several weeks waged a massive legal and international public relations appeal for clemency. Long a self-admitted ham who had always enjoyed mugging for a camera -- even during her wild days as a drug-abusing, motorcycle-riding, hot-headed prostitute -- Tucker, her crime and her punishment have become the conundrum in the debate over capital punishment. While her crime still ranks as one of the grisliest in Houston history, her supporters insisted that her Christian rebirth and her efforts to reach beyond her barred prison cell to warn youngsters of the dangers of her former lifestyle were proof she was no longer a danger to society. But those who insisted she should die have maintained that no matter the sometimes-angelic smiling face and twinkling eyes, no amount of changed personality could overcome the horrific facts of her crime. Tucker and her then-lover Daniel Garrett were condemned by a Houston jury in for the June slaying of Dean, a year-old former cable installer. Dean was hacked more than 20 times with one of his own tools -- a 3-foot-long pickax -- as he lay sleeping in his northeast Houston apartment. The motive, Tucker later explained, was to settle a grudge she had against Dean for once parking his leaking motorcycle in her living room and for destroying the only picture she had of herself with her mother. Also killed was Deborah Thornton, 32, an office worker who had fought with her husband and stormed off, only to meet Dean at a party and go home with him. She was lying in bed with Dean when Tucker and Garrett showed up and began their attack. Thornton was hacked more than 20 times, the pickax left embedded in her chest, but neither Dean nor Garrett was ever tried specifically in Thornton's death. Tucker, who was a year-old divorcee, would later claim that she experienced sexual pleasure every time she plunged the heavy ax into her victims. Garrett, 37, also was sentenced to die for the crime, but he died of liver disease in while awaiting retrial in connection with Dean's death. Tucker testified against Garrett at his trial, and after she did so, Harris County authorities dropped the second murder charge against her in connection with Thornton's slaying. Although she pleaded not guilty, once she was convicted, she never again denied the murders, which she said occurred after a weekend of bingeing on drugs and alcohol. Although she claimed her mother introduced her to drugs and urged her into prostitution, she had said, at least in recent weeks, that she no longer blames her mother. Indeed, in her letter pleading to Bush to spare her life, she said, "Justice and law demand my life for the two innocent lives I brutally murdered that night. Karla Faye Tucker was executed by lethal injection tonight, gasping and coughing twice before she was pronounced dead at 6: Bush refused to grant Tucker a one-time temporary reprieve, something he has also not done for the 59 men executed during his three years in office. Since the death penalty was reinstated in , people have been executed nationwide—Tucker is the second woman to be put to death since then. Say Goodbye. The Texas Board of Pardons and Parole was lobbied by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson, Amnesty International and even the pope, who wanted to give her a life sentence without parole. The board unanimously rejected 16 similar requests last year. Texas, which is responsible for about a third of the executions nationwide, put to death a record 37 death row inmates in Tucker was taped saying the killings enthralled her to the point of sexual ecstasy. Her cause also attracted support from around the world, with appeals for clemency from the United Nations and the European Parliament. But given the recent history of the Texas parole board, even a single vote from the member panel in favor of clemency for a condemned murderer would be unusual. Interviews with Tucker have been broadcast on television nationwide, bringing much attention to her plea for mercy. During the 12 months ending June 30, , the number of women under the jurisdiction of state and federal prison authorities grew from 73, to 78, Women accounted for 6. Similar claims of conversions by male prisoners, however, have often been disregarded as a right to clemency. December 14, - Conjure the image: An attractive, year-old woman is strapped to a gurney in Texas' execution chamber, her dark, shoulder-length curls splayed across the antiseptic white sheet that covers the hard, cold deathbed. Her charcoal-colored eyes are transfixed ethereally while she utters her final entreaty to the God who she says miraculously transformed her in jail. As a lethal cocktail pumps through her veins, she may involuntarily arch upward -- straining against the leather straps -- and gasp or cough a couple of times before her final breath is expelled in a matter of seconds. That, critics contend, is an image that will haunt Texans if Karla Faye Tucker, a condemned killer from Houston, is executed early next year. Contrast that mental portrait of Tucker with the one that state's attorneys, victims' rights groups and others say should be replayed in people's minds: A wild-eyed, year-old prostitute -- after a weekend orgy of methadone, heroin, Dilaudid, Valium, Placidyls, Somas, Wygesics, Percodan, Mandrax, marijuana, rum and tequila -- smiles maniacally at year-old Jerry Lynn Dean. It ticked her off that he once parked his oil-leaking motorcycle in her living room. She takes her first swing with a pickax. Flesh tears. Blood spurts. Bones crack as the 3-foot-long tool thuds first against Dean and later against his companion, year-old Deborah Thornton. By the time the screams end, Tucker and her accomplice will have hacked their victims more than 20 times. The June murder was one of the grisliest in Houston history, and Tucker could well become the first woman to be executed in Texas since the s. Her accomplice, Daniel Ryan Garrett, also was sentenced to die for his part in the crime. His case was sent back for retrial on appeal, but he died of liver disease in while waiting for a new trial, still behind bars. In a state with the most active execution chamber in the nation -- 37 death sentences have been carried out this year alone and since -- Tucker's case is likely to bring unprecedented scrutiny on Texas and, at least temporarily, refuel the debate over capital punishment. Already, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has been besieged by requests from media around the world wanting to interview the woman who once bragged to her sister that she was sexually gratified each time she axed her victims. Death penalty opponents, religious leaders and thousands of other people -- mostly outside Texas -- are expected to mount an intense campaign in the coming weeks to try to persuade Gov. Bush to commute Tucker's sentence to life imprisonment. Democrat Garry Mauro -- who is challenging Bush's re-election bid -- said he's glad he does not have to face the issue. It's a tough issue. I wish him well on coming to a resolution on it. Televangelist Pat Robertson told 60 Minutes in a recent interview that Tucker has his support and that if Bush "lets this sweet woman of God die, he's a man who shows no mercy. Texas Christian Coalition President Dick Weinhold said he not only personally disagrees with Robertson but knows of no organized effort to spare Tucker's life. She seems to have strong testimony. Her salvation and conversion seem to be And her life seems to really have undergone a transformation. So I'm delighted. That is great. There were two individuals that were murdered. The consequences of her crime call for her death. I don't believe the compassion side should overrule the consequences in this case. But I think there's still consequences for our actions. Dudley Sharp of the Houston-based victims' rights group Justice for All said he expects "religious leaders from all over the world -- not just the pope -- will be putting pressure on the governor" to spare Tucker's life. For clues about how the coming weeks might play in Texas, rewind to North Carolina, It was there that "Death Row Granny" Margie Velma Barfield, a born-again Christian who was posthumously praised by Billy Graham for her impact on other prisoners, became the first woman to be put to death in the modern era of the capital punishment. The portly, bespectacled year-old private nurse and former Sunday school teacher was convicted of lacing her boyfriend's food with rat poison. She later admitted to poisoning three others, including her mother. Her case also became a last-minute political issue in a tough U. Senate election in which liberal Democrat Gov. Jim Hunt challenged Republican incumbent Sen. Jesse Helms. Political analysts said Hunt was doomed to be hurt politically regardless of what he did. Had he commuted Barfield's sentence, he risked alienating his conservative pro-death penalty constituency. Some analysts said at the time that his refusal to show compassion toward the woman may have persuaded liberal, anti-death penalty voters to stay away from the polls. Joe Freeman Britt, the former prosecutor who sent Barfield to death row, remembers the pressure that mounted in North Carolina. That then generated a certain political pressure in the case. But unlike Tucker's jailhouse conversion, Britt said, Barfield had always professed to being a God-fearing, church-going woman. He said Barfield bolstered her image as a devout Christian by asking her employers -- the families who hired her to care for ailing, elderly relatives whom she later poisoned -- for Wednesday nights and Sundays off so she could go to church. Once imprisoned she, too, began leading Bible studies and counseling troubled female felons. She also uttered a deathbed apology. The image the media portrayed most often was that of a grandmother kneeling in prayer in prison, Britt added, and some of the victims' relatives had a difficult time believing she was capable of the crimes. Britt, however, said he was unfazed by arguments that Barfield should not be executed because of her Christianity -- a claim of which he was skeptical. I hope it's true. I hope they do that. And if Tucker has had this experience, that's wonderful. It prepares her better for the judgment under the law. Although death penalty opponents had predicted a public outrage if North Carolina proceeded with the execution of Barfield, Britt said that never materialized. One key difference between Tucker's and Barfield's cases is the commutation process. While North Carolina law allows its governor wide discretion in determining whether and when to pardon felons or reduce their sentences, the Texas Constitution allows a governor to take such action only if the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles first recommends it. And even if the board does, the governor may still reject a commutation. Additionally, the state constitution allows the governor to grant a one-time, day delay in an execution. Bush has never granted a day reprieve, but his predecessor, Democrat Ann Richards, did so twice. Tucker has not yet filed a petition for a reprieve or commutation with the parole board, but her attorney said he plans to ask the governor to commute her sentence. A Jan. In interviews with the Chronicle last week, several of the 18 parole board members indicate Tucker will have a tough time convincing them that her death sentence should not be carried out. Any pleas Tucker might make based on her turning her life over to God apparently will not carry much weight with some parole board members. Male convicts have raised the issue before and been rejected. Gwynne Austin. January 19, Karla Faye Tucker is the nicest woman on death row. She is so nice, in fact, and so well liked by people who know her that it is virtually impossible to look at this attractive, sweet-natured, born-again Christian and imagine the gruesome crime to which she confessed in Houston, Texas, on June 13, Back then she was a drug-addicted prostitute who, during a weekend orgy with her boyfriend, had consumed an astonishing quantity of heroin, Valium, speed, percodan, mandrax, marijuana, dilaudid, methadone, tequila and rum. The two then took a pickax and hacked to death Jerry Lynn Dean, 27, her ex-lover, and Deborah Thornton, 32, his companion of the moment, while they slept. Tucker, who left the pickax embedded in Thornton's chest, boasted at her trial that she had experienced an orgasm with each swing of the ax. She was convicted in and sentenced to death. Fourteen years later, in the state with the busiest execution chamber in the land, Tucker now finds herself next in line to die. Barring a last-minute delay or commutation, on Feb. If that happens, she will become the first woman executed in Texas since Chipita Rodriguez was hanged in for killing a horse trader--and the first woman in the U. There is no doubt that Tucker is guilty. She says so herself. What makes her case striking is not just her gender but also her apparently profound conversion to Christianity. The latter has prompted an unlikely cohort of supporters to come to her defense at the 11th hour, including Deborah Thornton's brother and Jerry Lynn Dean's sister, the homicide detective who put her on death row, several former prosecutors, televangelist Pat Robertson and thousands of citizens. Her staunchest supporter is Dana Brown, the prison chaplain she met and married two years ago--a relationship that has never been consummated, even by a kiss, because death-row inmates are not allowed contact with visitors. Says Tucker's attorney, George "Mac" Secrest: Skeptics respond that jailhouse conversions are both commonplace and not relevant in deciding who receives a pardon. Bush, who must concur for a sentence to be commuted, will block her execution. Bush, a law-and-order Republican facing a re-election campaign this year, would seem to gain little politically by such a move. Moreover, there simply are not the requisite legal questions or doubts about her guilt that might prompt commutation. Pardon has never been given to anyone in Texas based on religious conversion. None of which will make it any easier to watch the pleasant, earnestly friendly Tucker become the th person killed since Texas resumed the death penalty in She has said repeatedly in interviews that she is "far removed" from the person who committed the crime. But she is the person almost certain to die for it. A group of Texans opposed to the death penalty joined with a Danish human rights group Monday to release new stamps commemorating Karla Faye Tucker, the first woman executed in Texas since The stamps, which cannot be used to mail letters or packages, are similar in function to Easter Seals. Tucker have been made in the hope they will remind you of a human being killed by the state of Texas," said Karen Grue of the Denmark-based group Living Artists, which designed the stamps. There are two designs, both featuring the same face of a smiling Tucker. In one, she appears in front of a prison gurney similar to the one on which she was executed on Feb. On the other stamp, she appears opposite an American flag with an oil rig in the background. The stamps, intended to put a human face on those executed, are being distributed locally by the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and overseas by Amnesty International's office in Copenhagen. The president of Justice For All, a local victim's rights group, called the stamps a poorly conceived idea. The work would have been closer to the truth if it had included a pickax and a great deal of blood. Texas v. Karla Faye Tucker - Background Report: A Question of Mercy. Should Karla Faye Tucker die? Bush faced in the weeks leading up to Tucker's execution. However, on February 3, , Gov. Bush and the Texas Board of Pardons answered that question when Tucker was executed by lethal injection. In , Tucker was convicted of the brutal murders of her ex-lover, Jerry Lynn Dean, and his companion, Deborah Thornton and sentenced to the death penalty. During her trial, Tucker admitted that on June 13, , she and her boyfriend at the time, Daniel Ryan Garrett, took a pickax and hacked Dean and Thornton to death while they were sleeping. Garrett was also convicted of murder and sentenced to the death penalty. However, he died of liver disease while in prison in At the murder scene, investigators found the pickax still embedded in Thornton's chest. Tucker even boasted at her trial that she experienced an orgasm each time she plunged the ax down upon her victims. Back then, Tucker was a drug addict and prostitute who seemed unrepentant, and even proud, of her actions. In various pleas to save her life, Tucker's supporters and lawyer claimed that Tucker, 38, was not the same woman who committed those brutal murders nearly 15 years ago. She was a born-again Christian, and with her "girl-next-door" attractiveness, sometimes it may seem hard to believe that she could have committed such gruesome murders. But Tucker and her lawyer, David Botsford, freely admitted her guilt. Because of her conversion to Christianity, apparent rehabilitation and virtually spotless disciplinary record while in prison, Botsford and other supporters believed that Tucker should be spared the death penalty. Tucker's detractors said that religious conversions for inmates are common and are not a legitimate basis for a pardon from the death penalty. On January 20, , attorneys for Tucker filed a petition to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and state district court in Houston to postpone Tucker's execution so that they could have more time to challenge the constitutionality of the state's clemency procedure. In the page court document, Tucker's lawyers reportedly stressed that Tucker was fully rehabilitated and demonstrated during her year imprisonment that she posed no future threat to society. In seeking a pardon from the death penalty, Tucker asked that her sentence be reduced to life imprisonment. Under that sentence, Tucker would have been eligible for parole in Reportedly, Tucker's petition was also accompanied by approximately pages of exhibits supporting her plea. Among the exhibits was a Tucker wrote to Gov. Bush and members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, telling them that her crime was "the most horrible nightmare of my life" and that she is no longer a threat to society. According to court papers, Tucker and Garrett killed Jerry Lynn Dean and Deborah Thornton when they broke into Dean's apartment to steal motorcycle parts. Garrett was surprised to find Dean home, asleep in his bed, and proceeded to beat him over the head with a hammer. Tucker then struck Dean with a three-foot ax more than 20 times to stop the gurgling sound he was making. Seeing that Thornton was under the bedsheets next to Dean, Tucker then turned the ax on her. A pardon from a death sentence in Texas reportedly has never been granted to anyone based on a religious conversion. And of the 36 pardons that have been granted to Texas death-row inmates since , not one has been granted solely for humanitarian reasons. In addition, Gov. Bush, who would have had to approve the pardon with a majority vote by the parole board, publicly said that in evaluating Tucker's case, he would only consider whether there was any doubt she committed the crime and whether she had a fair trial. Karla Faye Tucker's case attracted a group of supporters that include Rev. Pat Robertson, the homicide detective who recommended that she get the death penalty in the first place, thousands of citizens, and even some support from her victims' siblings. Tucker married a prison chaplain, Dana Brown, two years ago, and he remained by her side until her execution. Tucker was the first woman executed in the United States since , coincidentally the year of her conviction. Karla Faye Tucker's appeal to halt her execution was rejected by the Texas Criminal Court of Appeals on January 28, , less than a week before her scheduled execution. Tucker's lawyers had argued Texas's procedure for commuting death sentences, claiming that the law provides no guidelines for parole board members in considering clemency for death row inmates. The following week, on February 2, the eve of Tucker's scheduled execution , the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, which could have recommend a pardon for Tucker to Gov. George Bush, rejected her request to have her death sentence changed to life in prison. On February 3, Tucker's last chance to avoid the death penalty lied with the U. Supreme Court, which considered her petition for a stay of the execution. But the Supreme Court denied the request, clearing the way for Tucker's execution later that day. Her death breaks with traditional queasiness over such punishment for female criminals. Legal scholars say fewer women are given capital sentences because they are less likely to kill. Williams, Los Angeles Times. Virginia put to death a year-old woman Thursday night, the first execution of a female in the country in five years and the first in that state for nearly a century. The lethal-injection death of Teresa Lewis, convicted of the contract killing of her husband and stepson, broke with a tradition of societal "queasiness" about executing women, one legal expert said. It could also psychologically clear the way to carrying out death sentences on others among the 60 condemned women in the nation — including 18 in California, according to some capital punishment observers. Lewis' death sentence was only the 12th carried out against a woman prisoner in the 34 years since capital punishment was restored as a sentencing option. In that same period, 1, men have been put to death. Legal scholars attribute the "gender bias" in executions to women's lower propensity to kill and the tendency of those who do to kill a husband, lover or child in the heat of emotion, seldom with the "aggravating factors" states require for a death sentence. They make it a worse crime if a homicide is committed during a felony, like robbery or rape, which are rarely involved in women's homicides," said Victor Streib, a Northern Ohio University law professor who has spent 30 years researching condemned women. Still, Streib added, "there are some cases that can't be explained by anything except a queasiness at executing women. We just seem to be reluctant to do that. Lewis was the first woman to be executed in Virginia since , when a year-old African American maid named Virginia Christian was sent to the electric chair for killing her employer after being accused of stealing a locket. Lewis was the only woman on death row in a state that is second in the number of executions since , with compared with Texas' Texas carried out the last female execution in the United States on Sept. Frances Newton was put to death by lethal injection for the murders of her husband and two children. She is also acknowledged to have been responsible for the death of her boyfriend Bobby Joe Morris in Colorado; however, by the time authorities made the connection between Buenoano and Morris, she had already been sentenced to death in the state of Florida. She is also believed to have been involved in a murder in Alabama; on his deathbed, Bobby Joe Morris confessed to having participated in that murder, but police were unable to find enough evidence to press charges. She was also suspected in the death of her boyfriend Gerald Dossett. After her arrest, Dossett's body was exhumed and analysed for signs of arsenic poisoning. No charges were laid in that case. However, his death was initially believed to be due to natural causes. In , she moved in with Bobby Joe Morris? He Xiuling, the youngest of the female death row inmates, is excited and exaggerated. Right, another female prisoner feeds Ms Xiuling dumplings for a late-night snack. A fragment of dignity: Ms Xiuling smiles as she squeezes into the new shoes she will wear for the execution. A last moment of joy: Ms Xiuling sits with prison guards and inmates the night before her execution, revealing her natural lively side as she rests her head against another woman. Passing time: Ms Xiuling and Ma Qingxiu, both sentenced to die, play cards with other inmates not on death-row as guards look on. The group appear relaxed and upbeat. Until now they had remained unseen. However, last week the pictures were published for the first time on Phoenix TV, a broadcaster in Hong Kong. The women had all been convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced to death. Ms Donggui is shown carefully folding her red prison clothes on the floor. She smiles as she displays off a red top to the photographer, choosing what her last outfit will be. No use for these anymore: Choosing execution outfit: Ms Xiuling tries on a black top, as she felt the white top made her look fat. Another death row inmate looks on, her feet in shackles. Crouching on her mattress, with her hands and feet shackled, she holds a bowl of green bean soup. In the corner of a room is a red bowl used for washing and a McDonald's meal given to prisoners. Moments later a guard appears and feeds her a lychee before she's escorted the next morning to the execution grounds. As she prepares to be taken away, Ms Donggui applies red nail polish with the help of prison guards. In another scene, Ms Juhua sits in her cell as a fellow convict records her last will and testament. Just yards away Ms Xiuling and Ms Qingxiu laugh as they play cards with inmates. The cameraman remembers Ms Xiuling as being 'excited and exaggerated' during the evening. The chubby year-old prisoner, who had been caught carrying 7, grams illegal drugs, was the liveliest of the inmates, gently resting her head on another women's leg as she smiles. A painful walk: At 7am in the morning, the convicts are walked into the execution ground to face their death as the guards watch them. Paraded as an example: Ms Xiuling is at the front of the line as 16 other convicts are walked in front of members of the public to the execution ground. She had won the lottery of future subjects of entertainment executions. A mere 19 years of age, she now confronted death. It was barely five minutes after the announcement was made that military officers appeared at her door, and escorted her to a secret prison facility in a unmarked prison van. She cried the whole way there. In this moment, there was nothing she regretted more than entering the lottery. But she had needed the money. Fresh out of high school, her parents refused to pay for college or provide their beautiful daughter with a place to call home. So Laura had few options. Therefore, she entered the execution lottery. And now it was her turn to be put to death. The gates swung open, admitting the van within the compound. The van pulled up to a large concrete building and Laura was pulled from the vehicle. A black hood was immediately drawn over her head, concealing part of her long, silky, brown hair. After being escorted down a maze of halls, she finally reached the cell assigned to her. Once the hood was removed, she could see up and down the hall, lined with hundreds of occupied cells. Each cell contained a young lady, much like herself. They were all naked, officially to prevent them from concealing any weapons or tools to escape, but unofficially, it was to acclimate them to public nudity, for they would be unclad during their executions. A guard followed her in and ordered her to face the wall. Laura had not the slightest clue as to what that might be, but she was certain it was not to be pleasant. The next day Laura awoke to a loud banging on her cell door. A single guard opened it and ordered her to stand up..
