FORT WORTH (AP) — Police say an ex-tenant of a Fort Worth apartment complex has been charged in the beating of an 89-year-old resident who later died.
Mansfield City Jail records show 32-year-old Kristin Minor was being held Wednesday on a charge of capital murder by terroristic threat. No attorney was listed to speak for Minor, whose bond was $750,000.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Henry Sawyer believed the Aug. 28 knock on his door was Meals on Wheels delivering food.
A woman forced her way in, beat Sawyer and stole cash and groceries. The real delivery driver found Sawyer, who died Sept. 2 at a hospital.
Police say Minor was arrested last Saturday, based on security video from the complex and a maintenance worker who recognized her as a former resident.
