The Virginia woman scheduled to die by lethal injection on Thursday night has had her fate sealed with the final legal decision made by the U.S Supreme Court. The Court has decided not to intervene. A few days ago, Virginia Governor Robert Mc Donnell refused to grant a stay of execution as requested on petition by Lewis’s lawyers. Lewis will be the first woman to be executed in Virginia in almost 100 years. Many pleas have gone out on behalf of Lewis who was given the death penalty for masterminding the murders of her husband and stepson. Those pleas went unheeded. The trigger men in this murder-for-hire case were given a lighter sentence, life imprisonment without parole. One of them have since committed suicide.
