Temple Man Indicted For Murder
Willie Frank Robertson of Temple was indicted by a grand jury Wednesday, charged with a June murder.
Robertson, 44, is accused of killing Michael Davis, 30, with a baseball bat after a drug deal went sour. According to an arrest affidavit, Temple Police responded to a call about a possible sexual assault in the 500 block of E. Avenue C. When they arrived, officers found Robertson and his wife, 55-year-old Barbie Lee Frazier, sitting on the porch of their house. Robertson told officers that the Davis’ body was in the back room.
Frazier at first told officers that Robertson hit Davis with a baseball bat after Davis sexually assaulted her. After she was transported to Scott and White Hospital for a rape exam, investigators began to notice inconsistencies in her story. After further questioning, Frazier told police that Davis had gone to the house to sell crack cocaine to the couple. Frazier allegedly agreed to exchange sex for the drug, to which he agreed. Davis then attempted to make a deal with Robertson for $450. Robertson allegedly left the room and returned shortly with a baseball bat and killed Davis. The couple agreed to tell police that Frazier has been sexually assaulted.
Robertson faces 5 to 99 year or life is convicted. Frazier, charged with tampering with physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse, could serve 2 to 20 years in jail if found guilty.
