Via lawbabeak, who says "Bottom line: battered woman who hired someone to kill her batterer is sentenced to death. Her appeals have been exhausted, and an execution date could soon be set.":

Gretchen Swift and I represent Gaile Owens, a battered woman who is facing execution in Tennessee. Gaile's case is currently pending before the Tennessee Supreme Court on a Motion to Set Execution Date. The order setting the date could come down at any moment. A clemency effort is underway and our Governor already has a petition before him. A website on behalf of Gaile went live yesterday. I am writing to ask each of you to visit the website and sign the online petition, if you are so moved. Also, please consider posting the website to your facebook or myspace pages. Forward the site to anyone who you think would be interested. Thank you.
