PLANO - A capital murder warrant for the arrest of the ex-boyfriend of a suburban Dallas fitness instructor was served on the man in an Arizona hospital.
A Plano police statement Tuesday confirmed that 48-year-old Terrance Deering Black had been served in a Flagstaff, Ariz., hospital where he was being treated for a 25-foot fall after a Friday leap from a Grand Canyon ledge.
The arrest affidavit says Susan Loper died of head trauma so severe that a detective described it as "overkill" that "could be attributed to a suspect who has had a personal relationship with the victim and then the relationship became strained."
Loper was reported missing April 19 from a Plano country club fitness room where police found blood and bullets. Her body was found the next day.
