Kelly Gissendaner and Gregory Owen conspired to kill her husband with Owen actually doing the deed.
When both were arrested they were offered plea bargains which would guarantee them only life sentences. Owen took the offer, but Gissendaner’s lawyer talked Gissendaner into refusing the offer since he never thought a jury would hand down the death sentence.
Due to this difference, Gregory Owen is serving a life sentence but is up for parole in eight years, while Kelly Gissendaner’s death sentence was carried out with her singing Amazing Grace as she faded and died .
