HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – The man accused of stabbing an 80-year-old woman to death on Saturday was out on bond at the time of the murder.
Bond for Randy Lewis, 38, was waived back on April 30 for a charge of assaulting a public servant from two years ago. A charging document stated he hit someone who was transferring him to the county jail.
Lewis is accused of killing Rosalie Cook. Police said she was stabbed in the chest outside of her car after shopping inside the Walgreens near the corner of Gessner and S. Braeswood Boulevard.
“What makes me angry is that this suspect stabbed an 80-year-old woman,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo at a briefing from the scene. “He then goes down and starts rifling through her stuff and then tries to steal her car.”
