DALLAS (AP) — A woman on Texas death row for the stabbing and bludgeoning of a 71-year-old woman has received a January 29 execution date.

Kimberly McCarthy was sentenced to die for the July 1997 killing of retired college professor Dorothy Booth during a robbery at Booth’s home in Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dallas.

The Dallas County District Attorney’s office disclosed the date Wednesday.

The 51-year-old McCarthy is one of 10 women sentenced to die in Texas but is the only one with a scheduled execution date. Since Texas resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982, only three of the 482 people put to death have been women.
