From what I know Mary did try to kill Elizabeth but Elizabeth went into hiding. Elizabeth stayed in hiding till Mary died and then came out and claimed the throne.

Why shouldn't Elizabeth 1 execute Mary?

Assuming you mean Mary, Queen of Scots, and not Mary Tudor (Elizabeth's half-sister), Elizabeth was reluctant to have Mary QS executed largely because, like Elizabeth, she was an anointed queen, and related to Elizabeth. She, Mary, was offered forgiveness and life, but she continued to be a part of several plots to assassinate Elizabeth. Ultimately Elizabeth had no choice and after many years and much vacillation she signed Mary's death warrant.

When did Queen Elizabeth I kill her half sister?
