Amar­illo man in­dicted in fa­tal knif­ing of wife

The Dallas Morning News - - State/North Texas - Sarah Sarder

An Amar­illo man has been in­dicted in a deadly stab­bing that tar­geted his es­tranged wife and a man he re­ferred to as her “new boy toy,” au­thor­i­ties say.

Jude Ed­ward Samora, 25, was in­dicted Nov. 28 on cap­i­tal mur­der and ag­gra­vated as­sault charges in Ran­dall County, KFDA-TV re­ported.

The CBS af­fil­i­ate re­ported that Samora killed his wife and stabbed a man at an apart­ment in the 4400 block of South Colter Street on Sept. 14. Ju­lianne Samora, 22, died at the scene.

Court doc­u­ments ob­tained by KFDA say a wit­ness saw Samora car­ry­ing a “Rambo”style knife, which his sis­ter-in­law de­scribed as be­ing longer than 6 inches.

The grand jury also in­dicted Jonathan Klause, 24, on charges of cap­i­tal mur­der and ag­gra­vated as­sault with a deadly weapon in con­nec­tion with the crime, KFDA re­ported. It was un­clear how he knew the Samoras.

Samora and Klause were in the Ran­dall County Jail.
