Study Guide Sanhedrin 46

Those who were stoned were also hung – does this include all or only some of those who were stoned?  How did the hanging process work?   Were women also hung?   Many of these laws are derived from 2 verses in Devarim regarding the death penalty.  The dead body must be buried by nightfall.   It is further derived from this verse that anyone who has a relative who dies must bury them by nightfall, unless there is an important reason to delay that would relate to respect for the dead.
