Murder suspect returns to Texas
A man accused in the fatal stabbings of his ex-girlfriend and her 8-year-old son has returned to Texas after his arrest in Oklahoma. Cedric Ricks is charged with murder in the May 1 deaths of Roxann Sanchez and Anthony Reyes Figueroa. He was arrested in Pauls Valley. Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes said Ricks was attacked by other inmates Thursday and suffered “visible injuries” to his face, but that they weren't serious. Court records show Ricks waived his extradition proceedings and was booked Friday in the Tarrant County, Texas, jail. In his mug shot, Ricks has a black eye that's swollen shut. The sheriff said the district attorney is reviewing the assault to determine whether any charges will be filed.
