0:12 On screen text: “Guinivere Garcia.”

1:19 Open on a Carol Marin news report about Guinivere Garcia, a death row inmate scheduled to be executed in less than one week. She says that she has “made peace” with the death, Amnesty International and human rights activists are fighting to save her. They recount the trials of Garcia’s difficult life, leading up to Garcia murdering her infant child to “protect her from the kind of abuse” she had suffered as a child.

2:45 They report how Garcia got married after serving time for the murder of her daughter, only to find that her new husband was also abusive. Four months after leaving jail, Garcia shot and killed him as well. Audio is low in interviews. Garcia has asked everyone who is petitioning on her account to stop, but women’s rights, human rights, and anti-death penalty activists continue to try and stop the execution.
