A top national death penalty opponent asked Thursday to help defend Lisa Montgomery, the Kansas woman accused of killing a pregnant Missourian and kidnapping her unborn baby.

Judy Clarke, whose clients have included some of the most reviled defendants in recent U.S. history, filed paperwork in federal court asking to join two other lawyers now representing Montgomery. Clarke is a federal public defender based in California.

Montgomery is charged with kidnapping resulting in death. She is accused of strangling Bobbi Jo Stinnett of Skidmore, Mo., and cutting her unborn baby from her womb in December. Investigators have alleged that Montgomery took the baby girl to her home in Melvern, Kan., and told her husband and children that she had given birth.
