MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) - A trial begins in North Texas for a man accused of murdering a fitness instructor who was kidnapped from the country club where she worked and found beaten to death in a field.
Opening statements begin Monday in the capital murder trial of 50-year-old Terrance Deering Black. The Dallas Morning News (dallasne.ws/NvxJK3) reports that he faces an automatic life sentence without parole if convicted in the death last year of his ex-girlfriend, 40-year-old Susan Loper of Frisco.
Black was arrested in Arizona after jumping 25 feet off the rim of the Grand Canyon.
Police say Loper was taken from the Gleneagles Country Club in Plano. Her body was found a day later in a field along the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco.
