9:30 PM: "A Mother's Justice: The Trials of Lisa Montgomery" 

Lisa Montgomery is the only woman on death row. 

In December 2004, Lisa Montgomery strangled a pregnant woman named Bobbie Jo Stinnett before cutting out and abducting her unborn child. Police later recovered the child safely over 100 miles away, across state lines.

In 2007, a Kansas City federal jury sentenced Montgomery to death. But there’s more to Montgomery’s story. We explore that at 9:30pm on 88.1 WVPE on Mon., Jan. 11, 2021.
