    Women Executed in the United States Since 1976

    These Are The Only 13 Women Executed In America In The Past 40 Years

    A jury will likely decide this month whether notorious murder defendant Jodi Arias should get the death penalty for murdering her ex-boyfriend. It would be unusual if she were executed.

    In the last century, only 40 women have received the death penalty in America - 13 have been executed since 1976, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. The total number of executions in the United States since 1976 is 1,343.

    BI looked into the stories of the 13 women on death row since the mid-'70s, many of whom killed their lovers.

    1.) Velma Barfield, a drug addict from North Carolina, forged her boyfriend's checks to fund her habit. Fearing he might find out about a $300 forged check, she poisoned his beer, the Associated Press reported. As the 1st woman sentenced to die in 22 years, Barfield eventually confessed to killing 3 others, including her own mother, The New York Times reported. She died by lethal injection in 1984.

    2.) Karla Faye Tucker and an accomplice wanted to end three days of drug-induced shenanigans by stealing a motorcycle. So they killed the owner of the bike and his friend with a pickax in 1983, CNN reported. Sentenced to die for her crimes, Tucker became a born-again Christian and waited for a pardon until hours before her lethal injection.

    3.) Judy Buenoano poisoned her husband and drowned her son, earning her the name "black widow," CNN reported. Buenoano attempted to bomb her fiance's car in 1983, which then led investigators to realize she had drowned her partially paralyzed son and poisoned her husband years earlier. She died in 1998 in Florida's electric chair.

    4.) Betty Lou Beets shot and killed her 5th husband in 1983, CNN reported. She claimed she was a battered wife and killed him in self-defense in an attempt to get clemency from then-Gov. George W. Bush. He rejected that claim. In 2000, Beets became the 2nd woman executed in Texas since the Civil War.

    5.) Christina Riggs tried and failed to kill her 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter by injecting them with potassium chloride, BBC reported. Instead, she smothered them with pillows. She died in 2000 - the 1st woman Arkansas executed in 150 years.

    6.) Wanda Jean Allen got the death penalty by lethal injection for killing her lover Gloria Leathers, whom she met in prison, USA Today reported. The American Civil Liberties Union wrote a letter for her clemency. The letter said she had severe, untreated mental disabilities that prosecutors knew about but never revealed during court proceedings. When she died in 2001, she became the 1st black woman executed since 1954.

    7.) Marilyn Plantz plotted with her lover and another man to kill her husband and collect on his $300,000 life insurance policy, BBC reported. The 2 men bludgeoned her husband to death while her children sat in another room. She died from lethal injection in 2001 in Oklahoma, which attracted attention from Amnesty Intentional as the state with the highest rate of capital punishment.

    8.) Lois Nadean Smith stabbed and killed her son's 21-year-old ex-girlfriend, Cindy Baillie, by shooting her 9 times and stabbing her in the throat, The Philadelphia Daily News reported. Smith died at the age of 61 from lethal injection in Oklahoma.

    9.) Lynda Lyon Block along with her common-law husband, George Everett Sibley, Jr., Lynda Block was convicted of the 1993 murder of police officer Roger Lamar Motley. Mrs. Block and Mr. Sibley, notably, were members of the militia group known as the 'Patriot' movement, which claimed Alabama never became a state after the end of the US civil war and thus claimed Alabama's judicial system was invalid.

    Near 12:00 midnight, on May 10, 2002, Block entered the execution chamber, wearing a white prison outfit. Her shaved head was covered with a black hood. At 12:01 a.m., the current was turned on. 2,050 volts of electricity were applied to her body for 20 seconds, and then 250 volts for 100 seconds. At 12:10 a.m., she was pronounced dead. She was the last person to be electrocuted in Alabama and the first woman executed in the state since 1957.

    10.) Aileen Wuornos, working as a prostitute along Florida's interstate highway, killed one of her male clients in 1989. Over the next year, she murdered 5 more. During her decade on death row, she garnered many titles: a "man-hating lesbian killer" or a "feminist hero who murdered in self-defense," The New York Times wrote. Her life inspired the major motion picture, "Monster," starring Charlize Theron. She died from lethal injection in 2002.

    11.) Frances Newton, the 1st woman Texas executed since the Civil War, killed her husband and 21-month-old daughter, the Austin Chronicle reported. Newton maintained her innocence, speculating that a drug dealer whom her husband owed money did the crime. The state refused her a pardon, and she died by lethal injection in 2005.

    12.) Teresa Lewis plotted to kill her husband and stepson and collect the insurance money. "Instead of pulling a trigger on a gun, she pulled a couple of young men in to pull the trigger for her," Prosecutor David Grimes told a judge at the time, The Washington Post reported. Virginia sentenced her to die by lethal injection. She was the 1st woman executed in the state in more than 100 years.

    13.) Kimberly McCarthy got the death penalty in Texas for killing her 71-year-old white neighbor, the Guardian reported. Lawyers attempted to get her pardoned because the police might have used her race as a factor to gain evidence. As the 500th person to die since capital punishment's reinstatement in the U.S. in 1976 as well as a black female, her case caused a bit of a frenzy.

    There are other women who clearly deserve it like a lady in CA who tortured and murdered her own kid or kids. Just can't think of the name but she is on CA death row which has turned into a punch line for a JOKE!

    According to Victor Streib, a renowned appellant attorney and professor of law at Ohio State, women account for approximate 10% of murders, yet less than 2% are sentenced to death for those murders. Less than 1% are actually executed. There is definitely gender bias when it comes to the death penalty.

    The most recent report of his on this subject I could find is through current December 2011.

    Among those ten percent of murders that Mr. Streib contends women commit, what percentage are actually capital murders? The fact is that there just aren't that many women who rob convenience stores and murder the sales clerk, or break into homes and rape and murder the occupant, or commit mass killings, or who are serial killers, and so on and so forth.

    In this particular study, Streib doesn't specify what percentage of those murders are capital offenses.

    From my own research of cases, most women are on death row for killing their children, spouse, lover, etc. Very few post-Furman have been serial killers. Wuvornos, Barfield and Buenoano were all serial killers, though Barfield and Buenoano were only convicted of one capital crime each. Block murdered a policeman and Tucker broke into an occupied home and murdered, but they are the only ones executed in the modern era (1973-) for committing such a crime. There are several women currently on death row that have killed strangers or persons outside of their family, Shawna Forde and Tiffany Cole among them.

    Manling Williams - California Death Row
    Sandi Dawn Nieves - California Death Row
    Susan Eubanks - California Death Row
    Socorro "Cora" Caro - California Death Row
    Dora Luz Buenrostro - California Death Row

    A question, wondering of the women on DR who is likely to be next? I am not very good at figuring out all the appeals process.

    My guess is Linda Carty in Texas. She's from St. Kitts and Nevis originally. Mrs. Carty has a rather tenuous claim to being a British national. The U K consulate in Houston has made some background noise about her case. The Guardian Reprieve and all that such and the like will make a big tado out of her execution.

    Only if you have a rather tenuous grasp of immigration and nationality law. Just sayin'.

    (Though I do not doubt that her conviction is safe and you are correct that she is likely to be the next woman prisoner to receive a date.)
