Home invasion victim dies in hospital

FORT WORTH -- The victim of a home invasion in west Fort Worth on March 28 died early Thursday from injuries he suffered in the break-in, authorities said.

John Porter, 69, died at 6:50 a.m. in the surgical unit of John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. His cause of death was not listed.

Fort Worth police said a capital murder warrant would be issued for the arrest of the suspect, James Ernest Floyd, 50. Floyd had been in the Kaufman County Jail on a kidnapping charge and parole violation, but jail officials said Thursday he was no longer there.

Porter and his wife, Diane Porter, also 69, were injured during the home invasion in the 10200 block of Cool Springs Drive. Officers were called to the home at about noon after a woman reported being robbed and shot.

Police had said the husband and wife were “assaulted,” but no further details about their injuries have been released.
