Lisa Montgomery, 52, was put to death by lethal injection at 1:31 AM Wednesday after the US Supreme Court lifted her last minute stay of execution.
The FBI is tracking down and charging anyone who participated in illegal activity during last Wednesday’s violent riots at the U.S. Capitol for their misdemeanor and/or felony crimes.
According to a statement that was released by USCP, officer Brian D. Sicknick, 42, died on Thursday after succumbing to injuries that he sustained the day prior “while physically engaging with the protestors.” Another Capitol Police officer, Howard Liebengood, died by suicide three days after the riot.
Lisa Montgomery was scheduled to be executed on December 8, 2020. However, her two lawyers caught COVID-19 and the execution was pushed to a later date, possibly into the start of President-elect Joseph Biden’s presidency.
