A Texas woman is in police custody after authorities say she brutally murdered her daughter’s boyfriend using bleach and striking him in the head with a hammer.
Fort Worth police report that 42-year-old Tyra Huntley killed 24-year-old LeMarcus Bell after he struck her daughter in the head with a Blu-ray disc player and fled the apartment they shared.
Hours later when Bell returned, police report that Huntley was there waiting for him and threw a cup of bleach in his face causing him to fall.
They then say she began striking him in the head with a hammer.
Bell was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital, where he died Tuesday.
Police say Bell was trying to leave during the attack and report that,
“There was no indication that the suspect, or her daughter, were under any imminent threat of bodily harm from Mr. Bell.”
