Execution Watch: Kimberly McCarthy Jan. 29

Kimberly McCarthy faces execution Tuesday

Tuesday is Jan. 29. It's also the day Texas plans to execute KIMBERLY McCARTHY, a former crack addict who was sentenced to death for the 1997 slaying of an elderly woman during a home robbery near Dallas.
Unless a stay is issued, Execution Watch will broadcast live coverage of McCarthy's execution, starting at 6 p.m. Central Time, on KPFT FM Houston 90.1 HD3 and online at http://executionwatch > Listen.
McCarthy, 51, is the former wife of New Black Panther Party founder Aaron Michaels, with whom she has a son. 
She is one of 10 women on Texas death row. Since the date was announced Sept. 12, she has been the only one with a scheduled execution. 
Three of the nearly 500 people Texas has put to death in the modern era have been women. Further background is at > Backpage on McCarthy.
