  • First woman to be executed in 70 years in US state seeks clemency in husband's murder

    The only woman on death row in the state of Georgia will become the first female to be executed in 70 years in the state Monday, unless the U.S. Supreme Court steps in with a last-minute reprieve. Kelly Renee Gissendaner, 46, was scheduled to die by injection of pentobarbital at the state prison in Jackson for the February 1997 murder of her husband, Douglas Gissendaner. Previously, courts had found Gissendaner had plotted the stabbing death of her husband by her boyfriend, Gregory Owen, who will be up for parole in eight years after accepting a life sentence and testifying against her. Gissendaner would be only the 16th American woman put to death since the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the death penalty to resume in 1976.

  • Pesticide likely killed two Quebec sisters in Thailand in 2012: coroner

    RIVIERE-DU-LOUP, Que. - A Quebec coroner has concluded that two sisters found dead in their hotel room in Thailand in 2012 were probably intoxicated by phosphine, a strong pesticide. The same pesticide was also believed to have been responsible for the recent deaths of two children in northern Alberta. Coroner Renee Roussel said Monday the fact Audrey, 20, and Noemi Belanger, 26, were both very sick and appeared to have the same symptoms led her to conclude they suffered the same health problem — intoxication. She said it is officially forbidden to use phosphine to fumigate hotel rooms in Thailand, but that it might in fact still be used.
