Accused Killer Expected in Texas Court

Posted: Updated:

WISE CO. Tx_ A suspect wanted in Oklahoma for a 12-year old murder was to make his initial appearance in a Texas court Tuesday.

Garland Allen is wanted for the murder of his ex-wife Tracy in Altus in 2001. Police arrested him Monday night in Decatur, Texas. Now, Altus police will work to bring him back to face the charges. He's to be back in court for an extradition hearing this week. He's currently being held in the Wise County Jail on 2nd degree murder charges.

Tracy's body has never been found, but authorities suspect he buried her after beating her to death. It was just last week that Altus police put out a warrant for him, after experts from the TV show "Cold Justice" worked with local detectives in gathering enough evidence to charge him. We'll keep you updated.
