Charlottesville, VA – The unofficial seven-month moratorium on death penalty executions has come to an end in Virginia, following the Supreme Court's April 16 action upholding the constitutionality of lethal injection. Governor Tim Kaine's office says it will move forward to schedule execution dates on a case-by-case basis. Teresa Lewis is the only woman - among 26 men - currently sitting on Virginia's death row. Nancy King, with the radio program With Good Reason, takes a look at a new book about women and the death penalty.
