    Texas convict who killed man while on bond for aggravated assault sentenced to 50 years


    A Texas convict who killed a man two years ago while out on bond for an aggravated assault has been sentenced to 50 years in prison, the Collin County District Attorney announced Thursday.

    “This murderer had a long history of violence and threats with firearms that had yet to catch up with him,” D.A. Greg Willis said in a statement of Justin Broadnax, 28. “Now he’s been held accountable for murdering an unsuspecting and innocent victim.” 

    On August, 21, 2021, Broadnax entered a Frisco, Texas, home uninvited, looking for his girlfriend. His girlfriend finally convinced him to leave, but he then started a fight with the victim and some of his friends and Broadnax shot the victim in the chest, killing him

    The Frisco Police Department arrested Broadnax three days later with help of U.S. Marshals after he fled to Houston, changed his appearance and disposed of the murder weapon, the D.A.’s office said.
