Murder Suspect Charged with String of Burglaries

More charges were filed Thursday night against a murder suspect in Nacogdoches. Authorities believe Artemis Smith also committed a series of other crimes. Smith was arrested earlier this week for the murder of Harold Harris.

Thursday police charged Smith with burglary of a habitation in connection with seven residential burglaries that have recently occurred in Nacogdoches. Smith was also charged with aggravated robbery. Investigators believe he assaulted a Nacogdoches woman while burglarizing her home.

Smith remains in the Nacogdoches county jail.
