FORT WORTH, Texas (TUSEN) – A man has been found guilty of the capital murder of his girlfriend in 2017.
Q’Juan Tiakei Holmes, 35, was automatically given a life sentence without parole for the murder of his girlfriend, Angela Gagne.
On June 4, 2017, Gagne called 911 to report that her boyfriend was beating her. Six days later, Holmes and Gagne got into an argument at her Fort Worth home while Holmes’ older brother, Xondadric Antonio Holmes, was visiting. While they argued, Q’Juan dragged Gagne into a guest room and kept her there while he and Xondadric stole TVs and other personal items.
Two days later, during a welfare check, police found her body in a pool of blood, naked, brutally beaten and shot four times in the head – in that same room.
After the shooting, Q’Juan took a bus to Florida. Police tracked him down and handed him over to Texas. Xondadric was also arrested and is facing a murder charge on Gagne’s death.
