The OP tries to make the case that a "grandmother" with an IQ of 70 is incapable of murder - which is untrue. Sounds like justice was carried out expeditiously, which is a good thing.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

I don't support the death penalty for that nature of murder, anyway (meaning 1 person buys the death of another - or plots otherwise - and had accomplices)
The death penalty should be reserved for serial killers on a large scale - plain and simple.
And we shouldn't be convicting those who are not able to discern right from wrong. . . which includes the officially insane as well as the mentally handicapped, etc.

It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.Pynchon - Gravity's Rainbow
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I don't like the death penalty, and think it should be abolished but while it is law, she shouldn't get any special treatment.

The marshmallow milk toast limp wrested brain dead protesters like the disgraceful hypocrite Jessie Jackson are the self same type of idiots that get people like John Albert Gardner, 31, a convicted sex offender, out of jail so they can kill innocent children like 14-year-old Amber Dubois, and the beautiful young lady who now has a new law named in her memory 17 year old Chelsea King.
So lame do gooders need to keep their BORDER LINE CRAZY Liberal thoughts and ideas to your self before they other people killed because they are pantie waists.

I'll reserve my sympathy for the husband Julian Clifton Lewis, Jr. and her stepson, Charles J. Lewis.

Low IQ != No Understanding of Morals
Just because she's stupid doesn't mean she doesn't understand that killing people and forcing your daughter to have sex is against the law. I haven't looked into this much, but from what I understand she was mentally capable of having a relationship, getting married, having a family and taking care of them, and being able to live a normal life without need of supervision. Even if she lacks any kind of morals she still has the intelligence to know that what she did was illegal. This, I would argue, is enough to say that she is viable for the death penalty.
In this case, IMO justice was served.
