Kelly Gissendaner Executed Despite Pope Plea

The US state of Georgia has executed its only female death row inmate, Kelly Gissendaner, despite a plea for clemency from the Pope.

The parole board denied her a stay of execution and she was pronounced dead at 12.21am local time (5.21 BST) after a lethal injection.

Gissendaner asked for a final prayer before she died, according to prison spokeswoman Lisa Rodriguez-Presley.

The board was not swayed by her appeal, nor by a letter they received from Pope Francis’ US representative seeking mercy for Gissendaner.
