It's a popping Tuesday on the Crime Beat. Here's what Star-Telegram reporters have delivered so far.
A 20-year-old state jail inmate faces capital murder charges in connection with the death of his girlfriend and their unborn baby.
At least 12 separate fires were set in rural areas west of Cleburne Monday afternoon, but deputies, firefighters and a crew with United Cooperative Services extinguished the flames before any major damage was reported, authorities said. They were still investigating on Tuesday.
Two weapons and an air rifle also were found in the Chevrolet Silverado, but the discovery of the documents and weapons prompted authorities to evacuate the shopping center on Grapevine Highway for several hours Tuesday morning.
Azeez A. Al-Ghaziani, 29, (shown here) was in the Hurst City Jail Tuesday afternoon.
And here's one that broke on Monday:
A 54-year-old Fort Worth man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the fatal stabbing of another man over a dispute about drugs. Clifton Wesley was sentenced Monday after a jury found him guilty of murder in the death of Preston Lorenzo Hunt.
Evidence presented in the trial showed Wesley and Hunt had been using drugs in Hunt's apartment for a couple of days when Wesley stabbed Hunt in the back because he believed Hunt had cheated him out of some drugs. Wesley's defense attorney argued that Hunt was alive when his client left the apartment that September day and that someone else murdered the man.
