ATLANTA – The only woman on Georgia's death row is set to be executed Monday.
Kelly Renee Gissendaner, who's 46, is set to die at 7 p.m. at the state prison in Jackson after the execution was delayed last week.
Gissendaner was convicted of murder in the February 1997 stabbing death of her husband. Prosecutors said she plotted his death with her boyfriend, Gregory Owen. Owen pleaded guilty and is serving a life sentence.
If Gissendaner's execution happens, she'll be the first woman executed in Georgia since 1945 and only the 16th woman put to death nationwide since the Supreme Court in 1976 allowed the death penalty to resume.
She was originally set to be executed last Wednesday, but the Department of Corrections postponed her execution because of projected winter weather conditions.
