DALLAS (AP) — Police in suburban Dallas say a 38-year-old man was on a drug binge when he fatally slashed his girlfriend.
Josh Thurber was charged by Balch Springs police with murder in the death of 65-year-old Linda Kaye Jordan, whose body was discovered Monday at the home she shared with Thurber.
Police said Wednesday that Thurber ingested methamphetamine over the weekend with a friend. An arrest warrant says when the friend returned Sunday he saw a naked Thurber run out of the house "acting crazy."
The warrant says Thurber told another man who went to check on him that he tortured Jordan. Her body was found in a bathroom.
Thurber is being held without bond at the Dallas County jail. Online records did not indicate an attorney for him.
