Antwone Betters: One down, two to go.
After two months on the run, the main suspect in the killing of an Austin woman near Gallery Furniture has been arrested.

Antwone Jermaine Betters, 25, was arrested without incident in northwest Harris County yesterday and faces capital murder charges.

Prosecutors say he was one of three men who had agreed to sell weed to Camille Ross on June 10. But during the transaction, the "suspects then produced weapons and demanded the females' money and cell phones," HPD says. "When Ross gave her cell phone and purse to the suspects, one of them shot her in the chest."

Ross, 24, of Austin, was pronounced dead at the scene in the 200 block of Rosamond.

The other suspects remain at large. Anyone with information on the identities of the two other wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Nobody is winning in this situation. How will him getting the death penalty bring her back,though? I know him personally & I'm not convinced it was him that actually pulled the trigger.

As a friend of the family , I have to clear something up .. Camille Ross was not the one buying the weed . She was just going for the ride to visit her best friend . Besides No one deserves to die for buying weed. She was going to start collage to have a better life for her beautiful little girl and her family . As for that sorry ass Antowne Betters , as we hear you also have kids , well how do you feel now ? You bastard . Sorry excuse for a human . We hope you get the death penalty . Camille is in a better place , she is with God and she is helping God look after her family . Rest in peace baby girl
