Texas Execution Female.jpg

This undated file photo provided by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice shows Kimberly McCarthy, who is on death row in Texas for the 1997 killing of a neighbor during a robbery. A state judge halted McCarthy's execution Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013, less than five hours before she could have been put to death, on the grounds that the jury that convicted her of murder was improperly selected on the basis of race. Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Shelly Yeatts says McCarthy's execution date now is April 3.
