Woman sentenced to death in the USA – level 1

06-10-2015 15:00

This news is about a woman. She is American. She is from Georgia. She plots to kill her husband.

Police catch her. A judge sentences her to death. This does not happen very often. Not many women are sentenced to death.

Pope Francis was in the USA. He tried to help this woman.

Difficult words: plot (to plan), sentence to death (to kill a criminal for doing something very bad), was (past of “is”).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
