Pardon for 'sex slave' executed for killing her abusive captor: "The trial of Ms Baker was set for 14 August 1944. On that day, an all-white, all-male jury was picked, the trial was held, a verdict of murder was reached, and the judge pronounced the death sentence. No forensic evidence was presented, Ms Baker's state appointed lawyer called no outside witnesses in her defence, and hearsay evidence against her was allowed."
