HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A suburban Dallas man convicted of the robbery-slaying of a woman delivering doughnuts and tacos to his home 11 years is set for execution in Huntsville.

Attorneys for 29-year-old Anthony Doyle are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his punishment set for Thursday evening.

Evidence showed Hyun Mi Cho (hYUN'-mee-cho) was fatally beaten with a baseball bat when Doyle tried to rob her as she made the food delivery to his parents' home in Rowlett, east of Dallas.

Her body was found in a trash can in a nearby alley.

Doyle was 18 at the time of the killing and on probation. Evidence showed he had a long history of juvenile trouble.

He'd be the fourth Texas inmate put to death this year.
