Update: Georgia Woman to be Executed Tonight at 7 p.m.

UPDATE: The State Board Pardon’s and Parole is denying the second clemency application on behalf of Kelly Renee Gissendaner. Gissendaner is set to be executed Mar. 2 at 7 p.m.

Kelly Renee Gissendaner is scheduled to be executed today at 7 p.m. She will be the first woman to be executed in Georgia since 1945.

Gissendaner’s attorney filed a request today to the State Board of Pardons to reconsider denying Gissendaner’s request for Clemency.

Reporter Brian Garcia talked to Todd Krohn, a Sociology professor at UGA who specializes in criminal punishment, who said that the main reasons Gissendaner is getting so much attention is because she is a woman and didn’t pull the trigger.
