BELTON - A Temple man faces a murder charge after an argument over money turned deadly. Placido Zavala-Grimaldo, aka Plasido Zavala, 33, was indicted Wednesday by a Bell County grand jury in the fatal shooting of Roberto Flores in Temple on July 21, 2006. Belen Torres Salazar, who witnessed the shooting, told Temple police Grimaldo and Flores had argued about money. Salazar said he tried to calm things down but Grimaldo pulled a revolver, fired three shots and Flores fell to the ground. Flores was later pronounced dead at Scott and White Hospital. Salazar directed police to the suspect’s home where Dorothy Ibarra, the suspect’s girlfriend, said she and Grimaldo had redeemed the suspect’s revolver from a pawnshop the day of the shooting. According to Murff Bledsoe, First Assistant District Attorney, Grimaldo was arrested a few days after the fatal shooting near Waxahachie. If convicted, Grimaldo could be sentenced to between five and 99 years or life, Bledsoe said. A 25-year-old Fort Hood man has been charged with injury to a child. Eric Michael White is accused of severely injuring the young female while her mother, Jolynn Cammisa, was away shopping at Fort Hood. According to Emergency Medical responders who answered a 911 call from the mother when she returned, the child had suffered severe head trauma and was unconscious. White claimed the child had fallen from a couch and struck her head on a box of baby wipes. The child was taken to Scott and White Hospital where doctors determined she had suffered a subdural hematoma and skull fracture. They operated and removed a part of the child’s brain. According to court records, the victim is believed to be blind and has brain damage. “She almost died,” said First Assistant District Attorney Murff Bledsoe. If convicted, White could be sentenced to between five and 99 years or life for the first-degree felony. A 46-year-old Temple man has been indicted by a Bell County grand jury for indecency with a child by contact and for aggravated sexual assault of a child while babysitting three brothers. Arthur Jay Morgan is accused of molesting the boys, aged 8, 10 and 12 while their grandmother, Hilda Guthrie, 55, of Temple, was present. Guthrie was also indicted by the grand jury on two counts of indecency with a child. The children were repeatedly abused by Morgan, Guthrie’s boyfriend, during the past two years according to court records. If convicted of the first-degree felony assault, Morgan could be sentenced to between five and 99 years or life. Guthrie faces between two and 20 years for the second-degree felonies.
