The Quinlan-Tawakoni News reports that West Tawakoni councilwoman Laura Bailey Beckett was arrested at 10 a.m. today by the West Tawakoni Police Department on two sealed indictments issued by the Hunt County Grand Jury.
Chief of Police Brandon Kilpatrick said the warrants were in connection with an accident involving death and tampering with physical evidence, the report said.
“The grand jury indictment and warrants issued were in connection with the case that was being investigated into the death of Jackie Blaylock of Quinlan,” Kilpatrick said, according to the report.
There’s still no answer in the West Tawakoni city council court room battle. An appeals court will be asked to determine whether a West Tawakoni city council member who ran unopposed for re-election on the November 6th ballot will be able to take office.
