[Ed. – Not the “Friday Night Lights” side of football, for sure.]
According to an affidavit, police say the person who stabbed and killed a woman at a South Austin apartment Sunday night was her own step-son, and the incident happened after the victim had been “gloating” about a Dallas Cowboys victory.
It happened at approximately 10:40 p.m. at a complex in the 2700 block of South Congress Avenue.
Detectives say Magdalena Ruiz and her husband were at their home sitting on the couch watching television. Also present was her step-son, 20-year-old Pontrey O’Neal Jones.
Jones told officers he had initially decided to break his little sister’s neck, but after changing his mind he had “developed a plan against” the victim, stashing a black-handled knife in the living room couch.
