Upon inquiry into the facts and circumstances of this case, and it appearing to t he [sic] Court that the defendant, Lena Baker, was on the 14th day of August, 1944, convicted of Murder, and on the 14th day of August, 1944, was sentenced by order of this court to the punsihment [sic] of death; and it further appearing to the Court that the said sentence has not been executed, having been superseded and stayed by a motion for a new trial, but which said motion was abandoned and dismissed and in lieu thereof, a respite for 90 days obtained from and granted by the Governor of Georgia pending an appeal to the State Pardon and Parole Board of Georgia, and which said appeal and plea was heard and-denied by the Said State Pardon and Parole Board, and an appropriate order having been duly and regularly passed; and it further appearing that the sentence heretofore imposed upon the said Lena Baker still stands in full force and effect and that no legal reason now exists against the execution of said sentence. I have a very strong conscience.” Lena was given an electrical shock not once but several times, for a total time of six minutes until she was pronounced dead at a.m.
Chairman of the Pardon and Parole Board, Edward Everett sent a letter to Lena advising her of her right to appeal the case.
The letter however, was mailed to Reidsville prison instead of Cuthbert where Lena was being held at the time.
Queenie, a very religious woman and strict disciplinarian, never struck her employers' children. After completing her sentence, Lena returned home to live with her mother and began making positive changes in her life.
If Lena disobeyed her mother, Queenie was known to tie Lena in a sack, hang it from a tree, and beat her. She attended church and found employment doing various jobs such as cleaning white peoples' homes, washing clothes, and picking cotton. When she washed, dried, and ironed a full basket of clothes, she was often paid only five or ten cents.
