Mississippi will execute a woman for a murder her son confessed to. The 56 year old woman, Michelle Byrom was convicted for the murder of her abusive husband back in 1999. She is the first female convict in 70 years to be killed in Mississippi.

The case garnered a lot of controversial attention. Byrom was in the hospital during the time of her late husband, Edward Byrom Sr.’s death. He was found shot to death in his bed. The woman reportedly admitted to hiring a friend of her son’s to kill her husband. She allegedly told the friend that she would pay him $15,000 of her husband’s life insurance money.

Many debates were generated regarding the details surrounding the case. Byrom’s son reportedly admitted in letters written to his mother that he killed his father after a physical altercation. The letters were intercepted by by authorities and thrown out in court thanks to the woman’s attorney.

Byrom was quoted saying, “No he’s not going to. I wouldn’t let him. I’ll take the respsonsibility. I’ll do it,” when asked if she was going to let her son take the blame for his father’s murder. This led prosecutors to believe she was guilty. She was convicted in 2000.

On the stand, Byrom’s son told the courtroom that he, his friend Joey Gillis and his mother plotted to murder his father. Gillis served 10 years and later shared with CNN that he was never guilty or involved in the murder. He said he was a pawn in Mrs. Byrom and her son’s case even though he accepted a plea deal after she received her death sentence. Gillis former friend allegedly made up the details of his father’s murder in hopes of getting “favorable treatment” for him and his mother.

It was reported that Michelle Byrom’s late husband not only beat her, but she was abused by her father and forced to prostitute. She even has a history of trying to commit suicide on several occasions.

An appeal was denied by the Mississippi Supreme Court in 2006. State Attorney General Jim Hood set Michelle Byrom’s lethal injection for Thursday, March 27.
