Georgia postponed its first execution of a woman in 70 years on Monday over issues with the injection drug. Kelly Renee Gissendaner, 46, was sentenced to die by injection of pentobarbital for the murder of her husband, Douglas Gissendaner, in 1997. Georgia Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan said officials delayed the execution out of an “abundance of caution” because the drug appeared cloudy. Hogan did not provide a rescheduled date. Gissendaner would be the 16th woman executed in the U.S. since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976.
