Man Sentenced in Murder Case

by Ramonica R. Jones

A Sabine County jury has found an East Texas man guilty of murder. Rusty Horton will spend the next 60 years in prison for the murder of Fred Easter.

The 78-year-old man's charred remains were found in his Bronson home last September. Easter had also been stabbed five times.

Authorities believe robbery was the motive for the killing. Horton and another man set Easter's home on fire to cover up the crime.
