DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police have arrested a man in connection to a grisly triple homicide that happened in Oak Cliff.
Justin Pharez Smith was arrested by members of the North Texas US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, at a residence in Grand Prairie on Sunday morning.
Smith is the suspect in yesterday’s triple homicide at 5125 Wynell Street.
Task force officers entered the residence, and took Smith into custody without incident.

Justin Smith was arrested and placed in Lew Sterrett Justice Center for Capital Murder.
His bond is set at $ 1 million.

Dallas police used old mugshots of Smith on their Crimestoppers website in hopes of getting any information that would lead to an arrest.
