Black woman receives lethal injection

 

Last night Wanda Jean Allen, a black woman who was guilty of two cases of murder, was executed in Oklahoma. She is the first black woman to be executed in the US since 1954. Her last words were "Father forgive them. They know not what they do."

Allen had shot her childhood friend in 1981 and had served a prison sentence of two years. In 1989 she killed her lesbian lover Gloria Leathers after an argument.

The death penalty was signed by Gov. Frank Keating. He had denied Allen a 30-day stay she had requested because it was still to be decided whether she was or wasn't mentally retarded. In the 70s she had scored only 69 points in an IQ test.
