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.

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.
