Lubbock man scheduled for execution in Huntsville

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man is set to die Wednesday night in Huntsville after being sentenced to death for a 1997 murder.

Michael Rosales, 35, of Lubbock was sent to death row for the 1997 beating and fatal stabbing of 67-year-old Mary Felder.

On June 4, 1997, Rosales was in the process of committing burglary of a habitation when he entered the home of Felder. Rosales claims he did not know she was home, and he was subsequently discovered while committing burglary. Rosales grabbed a kitchen knife from Felder's kitchen, stabbed her 137 times, and struck her with a hard object resulting in her death.

In 2004, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay just hours before his scheduled execution.

Rosales' execution is scheduled for Wednesday night at 6 p.m.
