Kelly Gissendaner
 


 

Age: 47



Summary:
convicted malice murderer and the only woman on Georgia's death row who had been convicted of orchestrating the 1997 murder of her husband Douglas Gissendaner after an accomplice and former lover Gregory Owen testified against her as part of a plea bargain that landed him a life sentence but spared him from the death penalty and whose execution was originally scheduled for March 2, 2015 but was postponed because the lethal injection drug had been stored at low temperatures and had become cloudy despite a vigorous campaign by clergy and celebrities to stop her execution.
