The US is to execute a female federal inmate for the first time in almost 70 years, the Justice Department said.
Lisa Montgomery strangled a pregnant woman in Missouri before cutting out and kidnapping the baby in 2004. She is due to be given a lethal injection in Indiana on 8 December.
The last woman to be executed by the US government was Bonnie Heady, who died in a gas chamber in Missouri in 1953, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
US Attorney General William Barr said the crimes were "especially heinous murders".
