Rosales Receives Stay of Execution

T.D.C.J. T.D.C.J.

The scheduled execution of a Lubbock man has been put on hold. 30-year-old Michael Rosales was sent to death row for the 1997 beating and fatal stabbing of 67-year-old Mary Felder. It happened on June 4th of 1997 at a Lubbock apartment complex. Rosales stabbed Felder more than a hundred times after she interrupted a burglary of her apartment.

Defense attorneys say Rosales is mentally retarded, and should not be executed. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the stay, just before one o'clock Tuesday afternoon.

The case will now be sent back to a Lubbock court, where defense attorneys will file a petition asking that the issue of his mental retardation be investigated further.
