Suspect in Texas Killing Captured in Florida
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — An Arizona man wanted for a homicide in Texas is also accused of beating an 86-year-old man and kidnapping two women during a home invasion in New Mexico.
Police say 38-year-old Jason Gibson is facing numerous charges in southern New Mexico, including kidnapping, aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Gibson was arrested Tuesday in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Las Cruces police accuse Gibson of forcing his way into a home in a gated mobile home park and then beating the homeowner. He's also accused of kidnapping the man's adult daughter and a friend when they arrived at the home to pick up the man for a Thanksgiving meal.
Armed with a handgun, the suspect ordered the daughter to drive him to El Paso, where he was accused of shooting a family of three during another home invasion on Thanksgiving Day.
