The U.S. federal government, continuing its string of executions this year, has set the dates for two more, including the first woman in more than six decades. Lisa Montgomery is expected to receive lethal injection on December 8, the Justice Department says. In 2004, she was convicted of strangling a Missouri woman who was eight-months pregnant, then cut out and kidnapped the baby.
