WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has refused to block Virginia’s plan to execute a woman convicted in two killings, setting the stage for the state’s first execution of a woman in nearly a century.

The woman, Teresa Lewis, is scheduled to die by injection Thursday for trading sex and money in the hired killings of her husband and stepson in October 2002 for a quarter-million dollar insurance payout.

Two of the three women on the court, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, voted to stop the execution. The court did not otherwise comment on its order Tuesday.
