October 14, 2013 - Charges have been filed against a third suspect arrested in the death of a man at 9303 Woodfair about 1:55 a.m. on November 15, 2009.
Larinda Lynn Allen (b/f, 12-6-81) is now charged with murder in the 232nd State District Court. Two other suspects, Cory Bernard Sanders (b/m, DOB: 10-1-83) and Bianca Emerson (b/f, DOB: 11-20-86) were previously charged with murder in the 208th and 230th State District Courts. All three suspects are accused in the death of Noe Uribe, 33. Mr. Uribe was found critically injured at the above address and transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Photos of all three suspects are attached to this news release. Allen's photo is from 2009.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeants B. Harris, L. Flores and Senior Police Officers P. Guerrero and M. Waters reported:
Officers responded to a shooting call at 9303 Woodfair and saw Mr. Uribe lying in the driveway entrance to the Riverstone Apartments. HFD paramedics arrived at the scene and transported him to the hospital.
Investigators determined Uribe was beaten and then shot during a struggle with three robbery suspects.
The suspects, described only as a black male and two black females, then fled on foot, leaving their white Ford Thunderbird behind because Mr. Uribe's vehicle blocked their only exit.
Suspect Sanders was initially questioned by investigators. He claimed at the time his Thunderbird had been stolen. Further investigation and evidence obtained at the scene later linked Sanders and one other individual to the murder.
On Sept. 26, 2013, Sanders was re-interviewed and confessed to his role in Mr. Uribe's killing. He also provided information on two other possible suspects. One of them, Emerson, was charged on Oct. 4 in this case. Last Friday (Oct. 11), the third suspect, Allen, currently held in the Smith County jail, was also charged in Mr. Uribe's killing.
Investigators are not available for media intervews at this time.
