New Death Sentence in Dallas County

On August 29, 2012, a jury in Dallas County determined that Tyrone Cade should be put to death for the 2011 murders of his girlfriend, 37-year-old Mischell Fuller, and her daughter, 18-year-old Desaree Hoskins, during a jealous rage.  The jury rejected an insanity defense.
