Montgomery – who was pretending to be pregnant – had contacted Bobbie Jo about her rat terriers being sold on the internet.
Once inside her victim’s home, Montgomery attacked and strangled Stinnett – who was eight months pregnant – until the mom-to-be lost consciousness.
Using a kitchen knife, Montgomery then cut into Stinnett’s abdomen, causing her to regain consciousness.
A struggle ensued, and Montgomery strangled Stinnett to death.
Montgomery then removed the baby from Stinnett’s body, kidnapped the infant, and tried to pass her off as her own to family and friends.
Who was Bobbie Jo Stinnett’s husband Zeb?
Before dog breeder Bobbie Jo Stinnett was murdered at the age of 23, she had been looking forward to welcoming the birth of her first baby with her husband Zeb Stinnett.
She and Victoria Jo’s smitten dad were childhood sweethearts.
A 2005 New York Post story explains that the couple had been dreaming of trading their small rental cottage for a new home to raise their child.
In the days after his wife’s murder Zeb reportedly went into seclusion, with the Rev Harold Hamon of Skidmore Christian church telling reporters that the family was, ” devastated, they’re withdrawn.”

After a reunion with his kidnapped daughter in December 2004, Zeb Stinnett said: “It’s been emotional.
“But, I just look at [the baby], pick her up and that usually does it.”
Zeb, then aged 24, named her Victoria Jo, and dubbed her a “miracle”
What was Lisa Montgomery sentenced with?
In October 2007, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri found Montgomery guilty of federal kidnapping resulting in death, and unanimously recommended a death sentence, which the court imposed.
Her conviction and sentence were affirmed on appeal, and her request for collateral relief was rejected by every court that considered it.
