Teresa Lewis, who ignored repeated requests to stop smiling for her mug shot, and was convicted of masterminding a plan to off her husband and step-son, became the first woman executed in Virginia since 1912, when she was lethally injected about 45-minutes ago.
Lewis made a final meal request of: two fried chicken breasts, sweet peas with butter, a Dr. Pepper (yes!) and German cake or apple pie for dessert.
No, Pamba. No lobster.
Lewis was "tested by a board-certified forensic psychiatrist who found her IQ to be in the borderline range of intellectual functioning, but not at the level of mental retardation."
I guess that explains the request for sweet peas. I'd have chosen green beans, preferably the garlicy, dry-braised ones from China Village. Mmmmmm, dry-braise...
