There's been a break in a Brazos County murder case dating back to 2006, in which a man was shot to death and dumped in a field off of F-M 159.

Brazos County Sheriff's investigators say Eric Hicks, 44, of Houston has been arrested for the murder of College Station resident Demetrius Browder. He was arrested on January 30th and is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $200,000 bond.

The investigation stemmed from the discovery of a badly decomposed body in a culvert near Texas 105 in January of 2007. An autopsy showed it was Demetrius Browder, a man who'd been missing since October of the previous year, and that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head. Investigators haven't yet released a motive in the case.
