HPD Homicide Division Senior Police Officers R. Chappell and R. Bolton reported:
The suspect and Beverly Hurts were recently separated, with Beverly living in a woman's shelter to escape her husband's alleged abuse. She returned to the apartment on Friday afternoon to meet with her husband and a pastor for marriage counseling. However, before the pastor arrived, the suspect threw a boiling pot of water on her then bludgeoned Beverly to death with an aluminum baseball bat. The suspect then told his pastor and family members what he had done. He remained on the scene and was arrested without incident.
