Only 11 Women since 1976....and only 2 since 2000 were executed.
At the moment you got about 60 women on death row, so think about it....
with Darlie will that happen, imo:
"A Texas jury today shrank from condemning a former nurse to die after convicting her of killing dialysis patients whom she injected with bleach, according to The Associated Press.
Kimberly Saenz will spend the rest of her life in jail without possibility of parole, according to the AP."

Because since she was convicted you have too much media coverage. As a example.."Unsolved Mysteries" or "The Investigators"...
Both shows covered the case like Darlie is innocent and an Intruder did this crime. And the police made a huge mistake.
Then you have one juror which convicted Darlie in her trial, whos know on Record stating that he believes shes innocent. Then you got the other mistakes which was made in her trial.
I dont think that under this circumstantes, she will ever be executed. Im actually pretty sure about it.
But a new trial and a new conviction would change public opinion and the media coverage. Then there would be, maybe a possibilty for her execution. But right now, i dont see a chance.
and dont get me wrong.....I personally believe she is right there were she belongs.
