Dallas Police Arrest Suspect In Violent Attack, Murder Of 39-Year-Old Woman

DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — Dallas police have arrested the suspect responsible for the violent attack and murder of a 39-year-old earlier this month.

Around 3:30 a.m. Nov. 1, Dallas police were investigating an unrelated call when they found Charity Crim near the 5500 block of Maple Avenue with injuries consistent with a "violent attack."

Crim was later transported to a nearby hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries 15 days later.

On Nov. 20, detectives were able to identify a suspect in her death and obtain a murder warrant for 50-year-old Anthony De Wayne Randle and arrested him a week later on Nov. 27.
