A Texas man accused of shooting and killing woman because she wouldn’t let him use her cell phone appeared in court Monday.
Dondrick Flagg, 28, is accused of capital murder after police say he killed 29-year-old Tiffany McKnight over the weekend. ABC7 reported.
In court, Dondric Flagg had on the same red hoodie that he wore the morning of the alleged homicide.
Flagg did not answer any of the judge’s questions, but more details came out about the fatal shooting.
Police say McKnight was returning from the grocery store when he approached her at her apartment’s complex in the 2000 block of Reed Rd and asked to use her mobile phone.
McKnight was on the phone at the time. She refused, and that’s when Flagg allegedly shot her four times before running away.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Witnesses described Flagg, who was found by authorities several blocks away from the apartment complex.
Police say he struggled with officers, punching one of them in the face, before running off again. He threw a handgun in the bushes before being arrested. According to officials.
Flagg was wearing two distinctive lanyards around his neck, which allegedly belonged to the victim.
The records in the court state one of them was a Houston Texans lanyard with car keys and an image of the victim and a friend. The victim’s sister also described the exact lanyard.
Flagg did not give any information of killing woman to detectives after his arrest. He is currently being held without bond.
