College Station woman died from stab wounds, autopsy finds

FORT WORTH -- A College Station woman found dead behind a bakery Saturday morning died from multiple stab wounds, according to an autopsy report released Sunday by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.

The death of Annie M. Toliver, 59, was ruled a homicide.

Also in the case, Fort Worth officer Kerry Gober was released from a hospital Sunday. He was injured early Saturday when his patrol car was rammed head-on by a sport utility vehicle driven by a man suspected of kidnapping Toliver from College Station and dumping her body near Camp Bowie Boulevard.

The suspect, Stanley Wayne Robertson, 42, of College Station, was also injured and remains hospitalized under police guard.

Robertson faces a capital murder charge in Toliver's slaying, Fort Worth police Sgt. Pedro Criado said. He faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Tarrant County. College Station authorities will handle the capital murder case, authorities said.

The crime spree began about 6:25 p.m. Friday, when College Station police received a call reporting that Robertson had sent a text message, saying he had kidnapped his ex-girlfriend's mother and stabbed her, College Station police have said.

College Station police notified Fort Worth police that he was en route to this area

Fort Worth police saw the SUV early Saturday and began a low-speed pursuit on West Lancaster Avenue near the Will Rogers Coliseum.

At about 1:45 a.m. Saturday, the driver turned his vehicle around on U.S. 287 near Rosedale Street and drove in the wrong direction in the southbound lanes. A few seconds later, Robertson's vehicle rammed the patrol car, police said.

Authorities said Toliver's body was found about 5 a.m. Saturday behind a building in the 4000 block of Camp Bowie Boulevard.

According to Brazos County criminal court records, Robertson was released from jail Aug. 1 after he was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault involving his ex-girlfriend.
