December 15, 2006 -- A suspect has been arrested and charged in the fatal stabbings of two women found at 3130 Silver Falls about 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday (Dec. 13).

The suspect, identified as Joshua Ray Juarez (H/m, DOB 4-13-89), is charged with capital murder in the 182nd State District Court. He is accused in the killings of Lucy Maloney, 83, and her daughter Deborah Maloney, 53. Juarez, of 3126 Silver Falls, lives in the victims' neighborhood.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants A. Carrillo, T. Hernandez and Officers J. Selvera, X. Avila and D. Vasquez reported:

The female victims were found murdered inside their residence at 3130 Silver Falls and their vehicle, a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix, was stolen from the scene. The vehicle was recovered later in the afternoon in the 2100 block of Lake Village Drive.

Investigators developed information on a suspect who had confessed to friends
that he had taken the victims' vehicle. Officers conducting surveillance on the suspect's home on Thursday (Dec. 14) saw him leaving with a group of friends and getting into a vehicle. Those officers conducted a traffic stop and arrested the suspect in the 3100 block of Silver Falls Drive about 1:25 p.m.

During interviews with homicide investigators, suspect Juarez confessed to stabbing the two women. Juarez and one of the victims had ongoing problems regarding Juarez's dog running loose in the neighborhood. On the day of the murders, Juarez's dog entered the victims' backyard. Juarez went to the victims' home, knocked on the door, and was given permission to go to the backyard and get his dog. After getting the dog, Juarez went back into the home and said he and the victims again argued over the dog. During the argument, Juarez stabbed the victims and took their vehicle.
