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.
Maurie Levin, McCarthy's attorney, said all appeals have been exhausted.
