Texas Executes 500th Person Since 1982

 

 

 

 

” Fifty-two-year-old Kimberly McCarthy became the 500th person to be executed in Texas on Wednesday. Texas is the first state to reach such a number of executions, since capital punishment’s reinstitution in 1982. 

McCarthy, a former nursing home therapist, had been convicted for the 1997 robbery, beating and fatal stabbing of her 71-year-old neighbor, Dorothy Booth.

Booth, a retired college psychology professor, was attacked by McCarthy in her house in Lancaster, Dallas. McCarthy cut off Booth’s finger in to order to remove her wedding ring, according to authorities.”
