Dallas Man Kills Woman at His Apartment

Dallas Man Kills Woman at His Apartment

According to police reports, a man with an extensive criminal history murdered a woman at his southeast Oak Cliff apartment. Milton Moody III, is currently facing a murder charge after taking the life of 21-year-old woman Jennifer Dezarn. Authorities say he was brought into Dallas County Jail on March 16, 2020.

Police say on March 15, they responded to a call from an apartment near the 6200 Block of Highland Hills Drive. The caller told the first responders that he visited Moody at his apartment unit to purchase clothing, and upon arriving, Moody told him that he had killed Dezarn. Upon telling this to the caller, he then showed him Dezarn’s body and fled the scene.

Authorities interviewed two individuals who stayed in nearby apartments. They told police that they had heard loud noises coming from Milton’s unit throughout the previous evening, with one individual saying they heard a woman screaming.

Law enforcement officers were able to quickly locate Milton after this crime was committed. He was found at a local convenience store and was taken into custody upon being located. He is currently being held in custody with a bond set at $500,000.

According to court records, Milton has an extensive criminal record in Dallas County. He has over 20 convictions that date back to the 1990s, and his crimes include assault, drug possession, resisting arrest, and theft.

This is a brutal crime that must be punished. Dallas County law enforcement and prosecutors have a duty to protect and serve the public, and it would be no surprise to see this individual spend the rest of their life behind bars. Violent crimes can traumatize families and cause irreversible pain to the victim’s loved ones. There is no doubt that this vicious murder has rocked the lives of the individuals who knew and loved Jennifer Dezarn.

Moody Milton III is an individual that is a clear threat to society. We support and applaud all individuals who contributed to him being taken into custody and taken off the streets. Had officers not located him shortly after this crime took place, Milton could have potentially taken the lives of even more innocent victims.

    I was pulled over on the North Dallas Tollway for going 90 mph. The cop said that I was all over the road, and failed all the field tests and was obviously intoxicated. I pretty much lost all hope that I would walk away from this. That was until I found Richard McConathy. Richard and his firm fought the DA and eventually got my case dismissed. I couldn''t give a bigger recommendation for these guys. If you''re in trouble don''t hesitate, it is worth it.

    The law offices of Richard C. McConathy represented me with the utmost professionalism and they secured a victory for my probation revocation case. My case was nine years old and I was told by other firms that it would be very difficult to get the judge to revoke. This firm took my case on, and not only won the judgment, but also got the original probation case conditions dismissed. I highly recommend this law firm to any person in need if legal representation. They are very considerate and extremely knowledgeable.
