GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM) – It was July 4th when Garland police received a report about a dead  body in a warehouse. Over the weekend, police arrested the man they say committed the murder.

It took a few days before police identified the body found in the warehouse in 700 block of Shepherd Drive as that of Donald Wayne St. Clair. Police haven’t verified when or how the 81-year-old man died.

A week ago an arrest warrant was issued for Donald Ray Giles, of Dallas. The 53-year old was arrested Saturday and will be charged with Capital Murder.

Detectives believe Giles was trying to burglarize the warehouse when St. Clair was murdered.

He is being held in the Dallas County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
