A man who reportedly stabbed his older brother in the torso in March received a five-year probated sentence.
Ray Paul Zachmeyer, 24, was sentenced to deferred adjudication probation and a $2,000 fine on an aggravated assault of a family member with a deadly weapon charge on Aug. 20, according to court records.
Witnesses reportedly transported the injured 26-year-old man to Palo Pinto General Hospital in Mineral Wells on March 27, according to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office. The victim, who underwent surgery for the wound, reportedly told deputies the injury was self-inflicted.
However, Zachmeyer reportedly confessed to stabbing his brother and said he threw the pocket knife in a nearby lake, the sheriff’s office reported.
Shoplifter given four years
A man who pleaded guilty to helping steal a television from Walmart in Hudson Oaks in February received four years in jail, according to court records.
Hudson Oaks police said Norman Thomas Miller, 34, of Azle, was the getaway driver in the theft of a large, flat-panel TV and a baby monitor.
After two other suspects exited the store through the fire exit with the television, Miller met them in an SUV and fled pursuing police officers from the store parking lot.
After a short vehicle pursuit, Miller and the other suspects were reportedly taken into custody at gunpoint and the property recovered.
Miller, who was also charged with evading arrest with a vehicle and has previous drug-related convictions, pleaded guilty to the organized retail theft charge, a third degree felony, according to court records.
Ross Wade Hogans, 22, was sentenced to 18 months in relation to the incident and a charge of organized retail theft remains pending against Misty Nicole Fonville, according to court records.
