Woman murders significant other during fight in Cameron

A woman murdered a man during an argument in Cameron Thursday night, according to police investigators.

Cameron Police said Shira Taylor, 49, was arrested for killing Leroy Taylor, 52, after a domestic dispute involving a weapon escalated at a home in the 600 block of E. 6th Street in Cameron around 7:25 p.m. As of Friday morning, police had not said what the weapon was or what the argument was about.

Reached by phone Friday, a police employee said the relationship between Shira and Leroy was still being investigated. It was not immediately clear whether or not they were technically married, according to officials.

Leroy was pronounced dead by Milam County Justice of the Peace Andy Isaacs (Pct. 3), who ordered an autopsy.

The case is Cameron's first murder of 2017. The investigation is ongoing.
