Murder Trial Expected to Begin Soon

A trial is expected to begin next week for a man charged with killing another Sabine County man back in May.

23-year-old Michael Bailey, of Hemphill, is accused of shooting Tommy Arnold twice, once in the chest and once in the head. Family members say an argument involving Bailey's half-sister was the reason for the shooting. Authorities believe Arnold's body was put into the trunk of a car after the shooting and later dumped near his mother's home.

Arnold would have turned 25-years-old Monday.
