Gaile Owens killed her husband and Tennessee is preparing to kill her.
Mrs. Owens fate is subject to a riveting analysis by the Tennessean's John Siegenthaler which you should read for yourself at the Tennesseanwebsite. Siegenthaler compares and contrasts the Owens case to the nearly identical case of Mary Winkler.. As you will recall Winkler killed her husband and following 67 days of incarceration has custody of her children following her acquittal for murder. Owens lost her last court appeal and will be put to death if Tennessee's track record holds.
