LONGVIEW — Longview police say a man who’s accused of beating a volunteer at a church during a robbery attempt — is a member of the congregation.
Eighteen-year-old Robert Daniel Murray of Longview was arraigned today on two counts of aggravated assault.
He’s free on 100-thousand dollars bond.
Murray surrendered last night. He was accompanied by his attorney.
Detective Monty Gage says Murray isn’t acquainted with the victim or never targeted her in particular.
Fifty-six-year-old Laura White of Tatum is hospitalized today in serious condition.
She suffered head and face injuries in Monday afternoon’s attack at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Longview.
