GARLAND, Texas – Two teenage girls in Texas are facing capital murder charges after a man was found stabbed in a motel room, MyFoxDFW.com reports.
Police say 17-year-old Tatina Daniels and 18-year-old Teresa Price were "partying" Monday night in a motel room with the victim, 40-year-old Jesse Morales, Jr.
Authorities did not give details on what happened in the hotel room that night, but said the "party" involved drugs, sex and alcohol.
"At some point during the night, the party got out of hand," Garland Police public information officer Joe Harn said in a news release. "Police believe that led to the death of Morales."
The girls then allegedly took the victim's van and set fire to it.
Police had found the van, but were unaware of the murder until the two teens walked into a police station and told them where to find Morales' body.
