A Brownsville man convicted of murdering an 85-year-old woman with a screwdriver now has a date with death.

Ruben Gutierrez, who has long professed his innocence and is still fighting for DNA testing, is scheduled to die by lethal injection on Sept. 12 - the 20-year anniversary of his arrest.

The Cameron County man was sent to death row following the 1998 slaying of trailer park owner Escolastica Harrison. The elderly woman didn't trust banks, so she'd stowed roughly $600,000 of cash inside her home.

Gutierrez knew Harrison through her nephew and, according to prosecutors, befriended her just to rob her. In September 1998, authorities say he teamed up with two accomplices - Pedro and Rene Garcia - in hopes of carrying out their plan and making off with the cash.
