Wanted man arrested in 2016 murder of woman in Harker Heights

A Harker Heights man has turned himself in for murder.

HARKER HEIGHTS - A man wanted for murder surrendered himself to Harker Heights Police Thursday afternoon.

Matthew Stoddard, 22, of Copperas Cove was wanted on a warrant for murdering Angelica Nicole Santiago, 18, of Harker Heights, at the pair's apartment on Hopi Trail in Harker Heights on July 10, 2016. Despite early claims Santiago committed suicide, police investigators and the Bell County District Attorney's Office found probably cause to believe Stoddard shot Santiago dead.

On Thursday, a justice of the peace arraigned Stoddard and set his bond at one million dollars before transferring him to the Bell County Jail.
