Two people face murder charges in the death of a 65-year-old Baytown man, according to the Baytown Police Department.
Marcus Donnell Gilbert, 36, and Alicia Marie Keator, 34,
both of Baytown, were questioned Thursday night and into Friday morning
about the death of John Fernandez, whose body was found in his
apartment earlier this month.
Gilbert and Keator are in the Baytown Jail awaiting
transfer to the Harris County Jail. They are expected to be charged
with capital murder, authorities said.
Baytown Police did a welfare check on Fernandez at his
apartment on Jan. 2, following a call from someone who reported not
seeing him since Christmas.
Officers found Fernandez dead from apparent foul play. Police named Gilbert and Keator as persons of interest on Jan. 5.
