Two Teens have been charged with capital murder in Rockdale.

Yesterday Milam County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a home invasion yesterday in the 7300 block of FM 486. The call was received after the husband returned to his home to find his wife dead inside their home.

Sheriff Greene discovered that a white Ford Mustang had been taken which belonged to the victim.

The vehicle was located at a locale convenience store and Tanner Baker, an 18-year-old male was driving the vehicle.  A second suspect, Brandon Cotton was detained an hour later at a separate convenience store, also in Rockdale.

The DPS mobile crime lab was called to the scene to assist investigators in collecting evidence. Texas Ranger Matt Lindemann also came to aid investigators in interviewing the two subjects who later confessed that they had killed the woman and then burglarized the home.
