The recent execution of Teresa Lewis has proven controversial for a number of reasons, chief amongst them being that while Lewis plotted the murders of her husband and stepson, she did not carry them out herself. The gunmen recieved life sentences, making Lewis's death penalty surprising (the reasoning here being that the ringleader was more responsible than the actual killers). Other objections raised to Lewis's death penalty include her borderline IQ, dependant personality disorder, and lack of a previous criminal record. In her final days, many public figures stepped forward in support of commuting Lewis's death penalty to a life sentence, including legal novelist John Grisham, though Governor Bob McDonnell refused this request. Lewis's last meal is portrayed here with her original dessert choice of German chocolate cake, though some sources indicate she received her second choice, apple pie, instead.
