Man to Die in June for Dallas Slaying Loses at Supreme Court

Inmate scheduled for lethal injection in June

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the case of a man set to die later this year for the slaying of a 64-year-old Dallas-area woman 18 years ago.

The high court, without comment, rejected Monday the appeal of 46-year-old Charles Don Flores.

Flores is scheduled for lethal injection June 2 for the January 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.

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