Kilgore Man Charged in Baseball Bat Murder

Three years after a robbery involving a man beaten with a baseball bat a Kilgore man is charged with capital murder. 22 year old Jimmy Dale Morgan was arraigned in Longview Friday for allegedly beating a man with a baseball bat. Morgan was in custody for robbery charges when police say he admitted to robbing and beating 31-year old Tommy Dorman in his home in 1999. Dorman died of his injuries months later. That's when the charge against Morgan was upgraded from robbery to capital murder. Morgan remains in the Gregg County jail on a $250,000 bond.
