HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A woman on Texas death row has been given her execution date.

Reports indicate that Suzanne Basso is scheduled to die in the early part of next year for the 1998 beating death of a 59-year-old mentally impaired man.

That man was lured from New Jersey to the Houston area under the promise of marriage. Evidence against Basso showed that Basso or her son met Louis Musso at a church carnival in New Jersey. It was then that she made him make her the beneficiary of his insurance policies.

With Basso spearheading the deceptive act, prosecutors in the case said that she led a group of six that tortured Louis Musso so badly that he was unrecognizable when he was found in a ditch by a runner.

State District Judge Mary Lou Keel scheduled the date for 59-year-old Basso’s execution for February 5, 2014.
