A man is being held in the Titus County jail after police say he confessed to stabbing his sister to death after a heated argument, according to a press release from the Titus County Sheriff's Office.
At about 9 p.m. Wednesday night Titus County deputies found 56-year-old Theresa Collins stabbed to death in a house in the 100 block of Lillienstern in Talco after they were dispatched to a call about a stabbing, the release said.
Investigators found out her brother, Steven Lee Neugent, 50, lived in the house where Collins was found dead and that he and the victim's car were missing, the release said.
Authorities issued an alert and Neugent was found at a Pittsburg convenience store by the Pittsburg Police Department.
He was transported to the Titus County Jail where he confessed "to stabbing Theresa Collins after a heated argument occurred and told investigators where they could locate the knife he used to commit the assault," the release said.
Neugent has been charged with murder. His bond has not been set.
