Friend-Turned-Killer: Dallas Man Convicted of Capital Murder, Faces Life Behind Bars

Deandre Hines

In a recent court case, 32-year-old DeAndre Hines faced charges of capital murder in the state of Texas. Delayna Griffin served as the lead prosecutor, supported by Herschel Woods as the second chair. The case involved the dedicated efforts of DA investigators Martin Bosse, Rusty Taylor, and Mikey Csaszar, along with victim advocate Melinda Shelton.

Hines, a longtime friend and roommate of the victim, allegedly harbored tension over their living arrangement. The defendant reportedly decided to rob and fatally shoot the victim. On the fateful day, the victim was discovered by his girlfriend in his apartment, having suffered multiple gunshot wounds at the hands of Hines. During the course of the crime, Hines stole a significant amount of money and used the victim's vehicle to escape.

Law enforcement successfully traced the defendant's movements by matching GPS records from the stolen vehicle and Hines' cell phone. The defendant fled to Abilene, Texas, and then continued on to Oklahoma City, where he was apprehended under a warrant.

Following the trial, DeAndre Hines was found guilty and subsequently sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
