HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A man on death row for the slaying of a 64-year-old Dallas-area woman 18 years ago has received an execution date for later this year.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark said Monday 46-year-old Charles Don Flores is set to die June 2.

Flores faces lethal injection for the Jan. 29, 1998, shooting death of Elizabeth Black at her home in Farmers Branch. His trial attorneys argued another man was the shooter during a robbery attempt.

An appeal for him before the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to be considered by the justices next week.

Flores is one of at least eight Texas death row inmates with an execution date for this year.
