    TX - Jo Beth Marchand, 59, raped & murdered, Fort Worth, 2 Dec 2011

    A 42-year-old man whose attempted-rape case was dismissed in November is accused of sexually assaulting and killing another woman less than three weeks later.

    James Wesley Jackson was arrested by fugitive officers at his home Tuesday on a capital murder warrant in the death of 59-year-old Jo Beth Marchand, whose body was found Dec. 2 inside a closet in her apartment.

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    From January 2014:


    Homeless for seven years and with no living relatives, the mentally challenged woman had moved from a Fort Worth shelter into an apartment of her own with the help of the friends she had met through church — lawyer Linda Tarwater and social worker Terri Byrd...

    Monday morning, a little more than two years after the women found Marchand slain inside her apartment, her two “sisters” gathered at Marchand’s grave site at Skyview Memorial cemetery in Mansfield, watching as workers set in place a marble headstone for Marchand’s previously unmarked grave. The marker was purchased through the state’s Crime Victims’ Compensation Program...

    James Wesley Brooks Jackson, whose fingerprints and DNA were found by police inside Marchand’s apartment, was convicted March 1 of capital murder in the case. Because prosecutors did not seek the death penalty, he was automatically sentenced to life in prison without parole.
