Child killer Lisa Ann Coleman executed in Texas

UPDATE: Lisa Coleman made the journey to oblivion last night. She received a lethal injection one hour after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-minute appeal to spare her life. Coleman was pronounced dead at 6:24 p.m. CDT.
 EARLIER: Hell is rolling out the red carpet for Lisa Ann Coleman -- slated to be executed Wednesday for the sickening torture murder of  Davontae Williams. The 9-year-old's body was discovered July 26, 2004. 

At Coleman's trial, it was revealed  Davontae had been beaten and bound, weighed just 35 lbs. and his ravaged body was covered by more than 250 scars, including burns from cigars and cigarettes.
Coleman, now 38, at the time was the lesbian lover of Marcella Williams -- the boy's "mother."
The pair said the death was an accident and that Davontae had mental health issues. Williams later testified against her sapphic playmate and is doing a life-long jolt in the big house.

Her lawyer in trying for clemency pooh-poohed
the crimes: "What she's really guilty of is being a black lesbian. If she is executed, it will be because of her sexual orientation. Her sexual orientation played a role in the state choosing to seek the death penalty and in her getting the death penalty."

Not so, says Dixie Bersano, an assistant Tarrant County district attorney who prosecuted Coleman. "Davontae died of malnutrition, a slow and cruel process," she said. "There was not an inch of his body that had not been bruised or scarred or injured."
