Kimberly McCarthy, No. 500

June 26, 2013: Kimberly McCarthy, No. 500, the 500th person executed in Texas since the state resumed carrying out the death penalty in 1982 and the 13th woman nationwide since 1976. She was sentenced to death for the 1997 robbery, beating and fatal stabbing of retired college psychology professor Dorothy Booth. Booth had agreed to give McCarthy a cup of sugar before she was attacked with a butcher knife at her home. Authorities say McCarthy cut off Booth's finger to remove her wedding ring. (Photo: AP Photo/Texas Department of Criminal Justice, File)
