Wednesday Texas executed the 500th prisoner since the death penalty resumed in the United States.

Kimberly McCarthy was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection Wednesday night.

The 52-year-old is the first woman to be executed since 2010.

Her attorney said she had exhausted all efforts to block her execution.
