Texas to execute a woman, first in US since 2010

(AFP) 8 hours ago

WASHINGTON Kimberly McCarthy is set to become the first woman executed in the United States since 2010 on Tuesday after being condemned to death in Texas for murdering an elderly woman during a robbery.

McCarthy, 51, is black. Her victim, 70-year-old retired professor Dorothy Booth, was white.

McCarthy -- who has been on death row for 14 years -- is scheduled to be executed at 6 pm (2300 GMT) Tuesday after the US Supreme Court rejected her final appeal, prison officials said.

She will be just the 13th woman executed since the death penalty was reinstated in the United States in 1976.
