A man and a woman have been arrested on murder warrants, accused of fatally injuring a 28-year-old man by running him down with an SUV last month outside a north Fort Worth strip club.
Khristopher Jason Liserio, 31, was arrested Friday afternoon at a west Fort Worth apartment complex.
He was being booked into the Mansfield Jail on Friday, with bail set at $75,000 in the murder case. He was also to be held without bail on a parole violation warrant.
His girlfriend, Emmy Dawn Furr, 19, was arrested Wednesday night and remained in the Mansfield Jail, with bail set at $25,000.
The two are accused of striking Danny Prathoumvanh, 28, with a Ford Explorer on March 17 in the Cabaret North parking lot at 5316 Superior Parkway.
Prathoumvanh died the next morning at John Peter Smith Hospital.
Homicide Detective Kyle Sullivan said he believes that the hit-and-run was prompted by an argument between Prathoumvanh and the suspects as the groups were leaving.
“When we were doing the initial investigation, we found a vehicle part that had fallen off the suspect’s vehicle,” Sullivan said.
On Monday, police impounded the Explorer after it was found at a north Fort Worth apartment complex. Sullivan said the SUV was missing the same part that was found at the crime scene.
Liserio is a documented gang member, though police do not believe the incident was gang-related, Sullivan said.
Tarrant County court records show he was sentenced to six years in prison in June 2010 on convictions of possession of 50 to 500 pounds of marijuana and possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
