Man arrested for murder after DNA found on joint
Police have arrested a man for murder after they found his DNA on a marijuana rolled joint left at a murder scene.
Arlington police made the arrest in connection to a 2012 murder of a couple in their home.
The man was arrested on a parole violation and a subsequent saliva test confirmed the DNA results.
He has been charged with capital murder and is being held at the Tarrant County Jail, however his name was not released because he was 16 years old when the killings took place.
The bodies of Long Nguyen and wife Huong Ly were found in their apartment after a family member called asking police to conduct a welfare check.
Police say they both died of asphyxiation.
