"Texas Executes Lisa Coleman, Woman Who Starved Girlfriend's Child"

After the USSC denied cert/a stay, Texas executed the 15th woman so killed by the government since 1976.  She was relatively young at 38 (her mother got a life sentence for her part in the act) and executed for actions from a decade ago.  The failed technical claim and mitigation arguments seem credible to me. The crime was horrible but question the need or justice of a death sentence, even if one allows that for a limited class of crimes.
