Fort Worth ex-con gets life for killing woman during meth bingeA 34-year-old ex-con was sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday for fatally shooting a woman during a heated argument inside her home nearlty a year ago.
Jurors deliberated a little more than an hour before sentencing Frank Byrd of Fort Worth to the maximum for the Jan. 4, 2012, slaying of Hilary Eaton, a 39-year-old mother of three.
Prosecutors said the shooting resulted from an argument fueled by paranoia and sleepless days on a meth binge.

A man shot to death on Flamingo Road Sunday night has been identified as Dwaine Plummer, 24, who died from multiple gunshot wounds to his chest. His mother told a local TV news crew that he was her second son to be shot to death since 2010.
Second man convicted in Valero store slayingsIt took a jury less than 45 minutes to decide that Randy Seibel, 38, is guilty of capital murder in the March 2010 slayings of a 70-year-old bread truck driver and a 22-year-old store clerk during the robbery of a Valero store on Mansfield Highway.
Seibel will serve a life prison sentence with no chance for parole. He is the second man to be tried for the murders.
