This late burglar, his pal and palettes used text messages and 2-way radios in their burglary.

Now three of the burglars are charged with murder in the death of their cohort. Thats the way it works in TX (and OK).

AMARILLO — Three Amarillo residents charged with murder in a botched Dec. 19 home robbery used text messages and two-way radios to plot the heist with a fourth man, who was shot and killed during the robbery, authorities said.

Ashley Arce-Bitela, 24, and Memorie Denise Spangler, 26, have been arrested by Amarillo police on murder charges in the death of Leonard Torres, 26, who was killed during an attempted robbery at 1618 S. Arthur St. Their bonds were set at $250,000 in the murder cases, a Potter County jail official said.

SWAT officers arrested Memorie Spangler’s brother, Tony Michael Spangler, 21, on murder and armed robbery charges Dec. 20 at an unidentified Amarillo motel, police said. He remains in the detention center, where he is being held on a $500,000 bond.

Somehow that was missed by NBC in their quest to report all the news, all the truth without bias...
