Description

Velma Barfield was a serial killer convicted of six consecutive murders. She was the first woman in the United States to be executed after the 1976 resumption of capital punishment and the first woman to be executed by lethal injection. During her stay on death row, Barfield became a devout born again Christian. Barfield declined a last meal, having instead a bag of Cheez Doodles and a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola. Barfield wore pink pajamas and an adult diaper as she was put to death.
