Sitting on Iraq’s death row is a 25-year-old woman convicted in the slayings of three relatives. She says her husband carried out the killings and fled. She confessed to being an accomplice, she says, only after being tortured in police custody.

Despite lingering questions about the case, the fate of Samar Saed Abdullah remains the gallows.

She was tried and convicted in a single day, August 15, 2005.

“I am innocent,” she told CNN from inside the al-Kadhimiya Women’s Prison in Baghdad. “The judge did not hear me out. He refused to hear anything I have to say. He just sentenced me.”
