LONGVIEW - Longview Police Detectives have arrested two suspects in a 2006 murder case.
On August 17, 2006, friends of Alton Hicks called police after they couldn't reach him and became concerned for his welfare. Officers responded to Mr. Hicks's residence at 306 East Radio Street #A and located him dead inside his home.
Results from a medical examiner revealed that Hicks died from stab wounds and his death was classified as a homicide.
Alton Hicks's murder has remained an open and active investigation since August of 2006, with Longview Detectives continually reviewing leads, interviewing any possible witnesses and searching for evidence.
New information developed by detectives and presented to a Gregg County Grand Jury has resulted in the indictments of Carlos Stiff and Lasinda Crockett for the murder of Mr. Hicks.
Both Carlos Stiff and Lasinda Crockett have been charged with capital murder and booked into the Gregg County Jail.
