The only woman on death row in Georgia is set to be executed between noon on Sept. 29 and noon on Oct. 6, Patch.com reported.
Kelly Renee Gissendaner was set to be executed in late February and early March for her role in the Feb. 7, 1997, death of her husband, Douglas Gissendaner. Officials delayed the March execution at the 11th hour after the drug to be used appeared to be cloud.
Gissendaner was convicted on Nov. 18, 1999, and sentenced to death the following day. A co-defendant, Gregory Bruce Owen, pleaded guilty and is serving a life sentence.
A federal judge last month dismissed a lawsuit filed by Gissendaner who says an extended delay of her execution was cruel and unusual punishment. If executed, Gissendaner would be the first woman put to death in Georgia since 1945.
