Cameron Resident Faces Murder Charge

By  | 

Jealousy appears to be the motive behind a fatal stabbing in Milam County.

Raymond Scott, 27, of Cameron was arrested and charged with the murder of one of his friends, 24-year old James "JJ" Urban, Jr.

Authorities believe the confrontation was sparked by Scott's suspicions that his girlfriend and Urban were having an affair.

Around 5:45 p.m. Monday evening, Urban's mother went to check on her son and found him at his Maysfield home suffering from multiple stab wounds.

Investigators said Scott confessed to the stabbing after his arrest.

Scott is being held on $150,000 bond. Murder is a first degree felony.

Urban's body has been sent to the Dallas Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

The case is still under investigation.
