HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- It's been 21 years since a 26-year-old suburban Dallas woman was stabbed and strangled at her apartment.

On Wednesday, a man who shared an apartment next door to her is set to die for her murder.

Bobby Lee Hines already was on probation for burglary when he was arrested for Michelle Wendy Haupt's slaying. Evidence showed he bragged at a party at the apartment complex in Carrollton, just north of Dallas, that he was part of the maintenance crew and had a key that would allow him to enter anyone's apartment at any time.

His roommate - not Hines - was the maintenance man for the complex.

DNA tests earlier this year reconfirmed Hines as Haupt's killer.

His execution in Huntsville would be the 11th this year in Texas.
