Union Grove Murder Suspect Caught

A Gladewater teenager has been arrested and charged with capitol murder for allegedly killing a Union Grove man earlier this week. A citizens tip led police to arrest 17-year old Brandon Morgan early Thursday morning at a Gladewater residence. Investigators say Morgan broke into 62 year old James Evans' house in Union Grove on Tuesday, killed him, and then stole his truck.

Morgan had reportedly worked for Evans on several occasions. A motorist told police of giving Morgan a ride on the morning of the killing. He will be arraigned on charges tomorrow.
