After a flurry of failed last minute appeals, Georgia executes a woman convicted of murder.

FOX News Radio's Sal Giangrasso reports:

Georgia's carried out the execution of convicted killer Kelly Gissendaner, the first woman executed in that state in 70 years. She died by lethal injection after singing "Amazing Grace", according to witnesses.

It came after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected three separate appeals for a stay of execution. Georgia also denied bids for clemency.

Gissendaner was convicted of conspiring with her lover to murder her husband. Douglas Gissendaner was stabbed to death. Her lover, Gregory Owen, testified against her and is serving a sentence of life in prison.
