The number of criminals executed by Federal authorities over the past six months will reach 13 if all the sentences are carried out.
The US authorities intend to carry out the death sentences of five federally convicted criminals before the inauguration of the President-elect of the United States, which, according to US media estimates, was Democrat Joseph Biden for January 20, 2021. CNN reported this.
In December, Brandon Bernard, who killed two people with an accomplice in 1999, and Alfred Bourgeois, who was sentenced to death for violence and the murder of his daughter in 2002, will be executed. In January, Lisa Montgomery’s previously suspended death sentence for strangling a pregnant woman to death in 2004 will be carried out. Also, drug dealer Corey Johnson, who killed seven people in 1992, and Dustin Higgs, who ordered the murders of three women in 1996, will be executed this month.
As CNN notes, if all death sentences are carried out, the number of criminals executed by Federal authorities over the past six months will reach 13.
