Texas will reach a dubious milestone Wednesday when convicted killer Kimberly McCarthy is put to death, as it will mark the state's 500th execution since 1982.
Texas marked a solemn moment in criminal justice Wednesday evening, executing its 500th inmate since it resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982.
A state judge has halted the scheduled Tuesday evening execution of a Texas woman, Dallas County prosecutors said.
"If there was something to appeal, I would," she said.
McCarthy, who denied any involvement in the attacks, was indicted but not tried for those slayings.
