(CNN)The federal government, continuing its string of executions this year, has set the dates for two more, including the first woman in more than six decades.

The last woman executed by the US government was Bonnie Brown Heady on Dec. 18, 1953, according to US Bureau of Prisons records, for kidnapping and murder.

Montgomery's execution will be the Justice Department's eighth this year after a 17-hear hiatus.

The ninth execution will be Brandon Bernard, who was convicted of killing two youth ministers on a military reservation in Texas in 1999.

He is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on December 10.

Bernard's co-defendant, Christopher Vialva, was executed on September 22.

Before this year, the federal government had not executed anyone since 2003, and just four people since the 1960, Bureau of Prisons records show.
