Will Donna Moonda be the 3rd woman on federal death row?



Published: Sat, July 14, 2007 @ 10:55 p.m.

AKRON — The federal government hasn’t executed a woman since Bonnie Heady was sent to the gas chamber in 1953 for participating in the kidnapping and murder of a 6-year-old boy.

And just six months before Heady’s execution, Ethel Rosenberg, accused of selling secrets to the Russians, was the first female executed on federal death row.

Since then only two other women have been sentenced to death and are awaiting execution. This week, jurors will decide if Donna Moonda will join that group or spend the rest of her life in prison.

Moonda, 48, of Mercer County, Pa., was convicted earlier this month in the murder-for-hire of her wealthy physician husband, Dr. Gulam Moonda.

Donna Moonda’s lover and triggerman, Damian Bradford, was sentenced last week to 171 „2 years in federal prison. Bradford received a lighter sentence after agreeing to cooperate with federal prosecutors.
