UPDATE: Authorities say body is that of missing clerk

Associated Press - August 17, 2008 1:15 PM ET

DALLAS (AP) - Court records show a man suspected in the abduction of a North Texas store clerk later found dead was convicted of sexual assault.

30-year-old Wallace Bowman Jr., of Bowie was being held in the Archer County Jail in lieu of a $3 million bond. He did not have an attorney.

Authorities say Bowman led them to the body of 46-year-old Mindy Daffern.

Daffern went missing Friday, when surveillance footage showed her being confronted by an unmasked man at her family's store in Scotland.

Her body was found in the small town of Sunset, some 50 miles away.

Archer County Sheriff Ed Daniels expects Bowman to be charged with capital murder in Daffern's death.

Court records show Bowman was convicted of sexual assault in 1997 and sentenced to seven years in prison. He also failed to register as a sex offender in 2004. Bowman was given probation after being convicted for burglary of a building in 1996.
