McCarthy,Kimberly
TDCJ

51-year-old Kimberly McCarthy faces lethal injection Tuesday evening in Huntsville. She’d also be the first woman put to death in Texas in more than eight years.

A Dallas County jury already had convicted McCarthy of the slaying of retired psychology professor Dorothy Booth at her home south of Dallas in July of 1997 when evidence at the punishment phase of her trial tied her to two similar murders a decade earlier. A struggle took place and victim was stabbed numerous times resulting in her death. McCarthy then used the victim’s credit cards and used the victim’s vehicle for transportation.

Jurors determined she should be put to death.

Evidence showed Booth’s finger was hacked off with a butcher knife to steal her wedding ring.
