HOUSTON (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the case of a Louisiana parole violator set to die this week in Texas for the slaying of an East Texas woman at her home nine years ago.
Forty-one-year-old Donnie Lee Roberts is set for lethal injection Wednesday evening in Huntsville. He was living with 44-year-old Vicki Bowen at her home on Lake Livingston in 2003 when she was found shot twice in the head. A television and a truck were taken and Roberts had the truck when he was arrested.
He confessed to authorities to her killing and also to a slaying in Louisiana 12 years earlier.
The high court gave no explanation for its ruling Monday and merely listed Roberts' case with dozens of others in its regular weekly orders.
