Tennessee: Female to be Executed?

In 1988, Gaile Owens handed off $17,000 to a man in hopes that he would kill her allegedly abusive husband. She got what she wanted. But she also got the death penalty - something pretty rare for a female to get in this State. Currently, there are only two women on "death row" and Tennessee has not actually executed a woman for almost two centuries! A petition for clemency now sits with Governor Bredesen. See story here.
