From the AP:
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A man condemned for the 1986 stabbing death of an East Texas store clerk during a robbery faces execution tomorrow.
Michael Riley would be the 15th condemned killer to have his penalty carried out this year in Texas.
Authorities say Riley was a regular customer at the Shop-A-Minit store in Quitman when he killed clerk Wynona Lynn Harris and stole about $1,000.
Riley in 2005 was within days of execution when lawyers won a court-ordered reprieve by arguing that he was mentally disabled and ineligible for execution.
But Riley says he's not expecting a stay this time around, and he's asked friends "to not pray for no stay."
The Texas Pardons and Parole Board voted Friday not to recommend granting a 120-day reprieve sought by the defense.
Quitman is about 75 miles east of Dallas.
