First female execution - what do you think? Tom

MISSISSIPPI EXECUTION: First Female Set to Die Since 1944

 

If she's not granted a stay, 57-year-old Michelle Byrom will be put to death on Thursday and become the first woman executed in Mississippi since 1944.

She was convicted of plotting the 1999 murder of her husband Edward Byrom Senior, who was shot to death while Michelle was in the hospital battling double pneumonia.

Advocates are trying to get Michelle a stay because her son confessed to the crime of murdering his abusive father three times in jailhouse letters to his mother and also in a statement to a court-appointed psychologist.

Those confessions were never entered into evidence and Edward Byrom Junior was able to take a plea deal after testifying against his mother.

Warren Yoder, executive director of the Public Policy Center of Mississippi, says it's a "perversion of American jurisprudence" that a jury never heard the younger Byrom's confessions.
