HOUSTON – Police charged a 30-year-old man Friday in the murder of a 64-year-old Vietnam veteran while he slept in West Houston.

According to witnesses, Lambert had been arguing with a man named “Chad.”
Detectives said Chad Goodeaux, 30, sent a text message to someone bragging about slicing Lambert’s throat.
