A woman convicted of murder in Texas has been put to death, only the 14th time a female has been executed in the United States in nearly four decades.
Suzanne Basso, who was 59, was pronounced dead 11 minutes after a lethal injection, the BBC reports.
She was found guilty of the 1998 torture and killing of a mentally impaired man she had promised to marry.
Hours earlier, the Supreme Court rejected her lawyer's appeal that she was not mentally competent.
Basso reportedly did not make a final statement and smiled at two friends attending the execution.
