Woman Beaten To Death, Suspect In Custody

A suspect is in custody in the murder of a Cherokee County woman.

Fifty-seven-year old Rosa Chapa was found dead by her husband Sunday morning at her home on FM 2962.  That's in eastern Cherokee County near Rreklaw.

She suffered head trauma. Her car and personal items were also taken. A man who had reportedly been living at the Chapa home was also missing.

He was arrested for burglary just hours after the killing. Authorities say they have enough evidence to  now charge that man with murder. His name has not yet been released.
