HOUSTON (AP) — A female Texas death row inmate facing execution this month for the fatal stabbing and bludgeoning of a 71-year-old woman has lost an appeal at the U.S. Supreme Court.

The high court, without comment, refused Monday to review the case of 51-year-old Kimberly McCarthy.

McCarthy is set for lethal injection Jan. 29 for the July 1997 killing of retired college professor Dorothy Booth during a robbery at the victim’s home in Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dallas.

McCarthy is one of 10 women on death row in Texas but the only one with an execution date. At least eight men have executions scheduled in the coming months.

McCarthy would be the fourth Texas woman put to death since the state resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982.
