Investigators say Booth had agreed to give McCarthy a cup of sugar before she was attacked at her home in Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dallas. It was among three slayings linked to McCarthy, a former nursing home therapist who'd been addicted to crack cocaine. McCarthy will be the 13th woman executed in the U.S. since 1976, when the Supreme Court allowed the death penalty to resume. Since then, more than 1,300 men have been executed.
