A popular North Texas rockabilly singer, who performed with such legendary groups as The Cavaliers, was fatally shot Tuesday in Arlington.
This is a follow up to the Crime Time item that appeared late Tuesday, the one titled, "Arlington man killed in 'domestic' incident."
Police said his son-in-law, David Merrill (

"I can't believe someone could get that upset with Rudy," said band mate Neil Scheckels. "I never heard him say a bad word about anyone."
