BRENHAM, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas man has been charged in the 2014 fatal shooting of a Blinn College freshman whose body was found on a road in Brenham.

Washington County jail records show 18-year-old Michael Charles Dixon Jr. of Brenham was being held Friday on a capital murder charge.

Jail records don’t list an attorney to speak for Dixon, who was arrested Thursday night and bond set at $1 million.

Brenham police on Oct. 30, 2014, responded to a 911 call about a body on a street. The victim was Trey Alan Kurtz of Houston.

Police spokeswoman Angela Hahn on Friday did not release a possible motive in the slaying. She had no information on whether the suspect and Kurtz knew each other.

Brenham is about 70 miles northwest of Houston.


This story has been corrected to show the suspect’s middle name is spelled Charles, not Charges
