By LeaAnne Klentzman
According to authorities, Stalling, in association with Houstonians Martin Ferrel, 20, Cynthia Sandoval, 38, Shakur Briggs, 18 and Robert McClure, 22, and an unidentified juvenile were involved with the murder of Antonio Cesar Hinojosa.
On December 4, 2013, 32-year-old Hinojosa was found murdered in his residence in the 14200 block of Bay Gardens Drive in the Townewest subdivision. According to Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel, deputies responded to a call for service at the home after Hinojosa’s brother found his body in the residence.
Five of the six suspects were arrested within days but Stalling managed to elude authorities by leaving the state. Heanel said Investigators learned that Stalling had family and friends in Minneapolis so they expanded their search to include authorities in that area.
“Demetrius “Meach” Levale Stalling, 22, was apprehended Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014 by the Minneapolis Police Department in Minneapolis, MN.,” said Haenel. While Stalling’s arrest was not until January, the initial arrests in this case were made within days of the murder.
Stalling faces extradition back to Fort Bend County on a murder charge; his co-conspirators remain in jail each on $500,000 bond for murder. Along with murder charges, Martin Ferrel has another bond of $50,000 for an additional charge of credit card abuse; Sandoval faces additional charges of credit card abuse with a bond of $50,000 and theft bond of $25,000; McClure was also wanted on a parole violation.
