The US Justice Department said on Friday that it had set December 8 to carry out the first death sentence by a federal court in nearly 70 years.

The department said in a statement that Lisa Montgomery, convicted of strangling a pregnant woman in Missouri in 2004, would be executed by lethal injection at Terre Haute Correctional Facility, Indiana.

The Death Penalty Information Center says the last woman executed by federal court decision was Bonnie Heidi, who was placed in a Missouri gas chamber in 1953.
