Texas police are investigating the murder of a woman at a local church.
Midlothian police are examining several theories in the killing of a fitness instructor found slain in a North Texas church on Monday morning, officials said Tuesday, as her husband and others mourned.
Nearly 200 people gathered for a candlelight vigil Tuesday evening in memory of Missy Bevers, a 45-year-old mother of three.
Bevers was at Creekside Church of Christ early Monday morning to prepare for a Camp Gladiator class, and according to police when her students arrived at 5 a.m., they found her unresponsive and called 911.
