Suspect Charged in Connection to Killeen Murder Case
Killeen police have charged a suspect with murder in connection to a 2014 shooting death.
30-year-old Andrew Lenard Hardesty was charged Tuesday after police say they linked him to the shooting of 64-year-old Christine Watkins following a nearly year-long investigation. Hardesty, who was already in the Bell County Jail on an unrelated charge, is now being held on $1,000,000 bond.
Police found Wakins lying dead in her driveway with a gunshot wound in the 1400 block of Pine Dr. on Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 around 5:30 AM. Detectives have not said what may have motivated the shooting.
