Texas is set to execute Karla Faye Tucker at 7 P.M. ET today in Huntsville, TX. She would be the first woman executed in Texas since the Civil War. Tucker was condemned for the pickax slaying of two people in 1983.
Unless the execution is postponed CBS News will provide a Special Report, anchored by correspondent John Roberts, when it is announced by Huntsville, Texas, prison officials that Tucker is dead.
We will provide a LIVE Real Video feed of that broadcast here when it begins sometime after 7 P.M. ET.
