Georgia's only woman on death row was not executed Monday night due to "an abundance of caution" about the drug being used for the execution.
Kelly Gissendaner's execution at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson was temporarily postponed after the drug in question, pentobarbital, appeared cloudy. That cloudiness caused concern that it was somehow tainted or would not be effective in the procedure. The Georgia Department of Corrections did not take any questions but simply said the execution was "postponed."
In recent weeks, numerous groups, including many Christians, took up the cause of sparing Gissendaner from death. She was sentenced to death 18 years ago for conspiring with her boyfriend to kill her husband, Douglas. Her lawyers argued that Gissendaner did not actually take part in the murder and had been rehabilitated during her time in prison. However, the board denied the petition for clemency and the execution was to be carried out on Monday evening. more >>
