Deputies Investigate Sabine County Murder

by Ramonica R. Jones

Twenty-three year-old Michael Bailey of Hemphill has been arrested and charged with murder. He's accused of shooting 24-year-old Sabine County resident, Tommy Arnold, after the two men got into an argument last Friday.

The shooting happened at the King Cemetery in the Geneva community.

Authorities believe Bailey shot Arnold with a 9 mm pistol and put his body in the trunk of his car. Bailey is then accused of dumping Arnold's body near his home and driving off.

Investigators later found Bailey passed out in his car. He was arraigned on murder charges. His bail was denied.
