http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/09/23/AR2010092306866.htmlJARRATT, VA. - Teresa Lewis, who plotted with her young lover to kill her husband and stepson for insurance money, became the first woman executed in Virginia in nearly 100 years Thursday night when she was killed by lethal injection.
can someone find out why or what he cited about the case:
I've looked and didn't get any hits.all I get is the same sentence in 50 different papers... It's quite obvious this woman deserved the death sentence and luckily after 8 years it was FINALLY carried out. I wish it didn't take 8 years in federal prison to finally put someone to death that confessed to the actual murder/crime or theres 100% proof such as footage that removes all doubt that the criminal in fact commited the crime. It should be straight to the chamber or chair no more than 6 months of the guilty verdict. If lawyers can't come with substantial proof then :dtmb: :dtmb: :dtmb: :dtmb:Lewis's case generated passion and interest across the world. The European Union asked Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) to commute her sentence to life, citing her mental capacity. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cited the case at an appearance in New York.
