A Houston woman on death row now has an execution date for the brutal murder of a mentally-impaired man.

Suzanne Basso will be executed February 5, 2014, for the 1998 crime.

Basso lured 59-year-old Louis Musso from New Jersey with promises of marriage and convinced him to make her the beneficiary of his insurance policies.

Prosecutors say Basso lead a group that tortured and killed Musso and left his body in ditch in Jacinto City.
