HOUSTON – A suspect accused of killing a woman during a carjacking has been arrested and charged in the 176th State District Court Wednesday night.
55-year-old Marcus Wayne Brock was charged with capital murder and his bond has been set at $1 million.
According to investigators, the 41-year-old victim, Jessica Garza, picked up a family member at a church in the 900 block of Uvalde Road when Brock ran across the street and attempted to get inside of her vehicle.
It is believed that Garza attempted to stop the suspect or got stuck in her vehicle as the suspect drove it away.
The suspect is believed to have hit multiple objects before coming to a stop and then fled on foot.
Garza was found deceased outside of her vehicle.
Officers apprehended the suspect a short time later. He was questioned and subsequently charged in the case.
