Police say two people have been arrested in the death of an off-duty Abilene police officer found dead in his West Texas home.
Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge said in a Thursday news conference that a 30-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man have been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. They are being held on $500,000 bond each.
Authorities say 27-year-old Officer Don Allen was found dead Monday night at his home near Clyde. Standridge had previously declined to say how the officer died. The results of a preliminary autopsy are pending.
According to authorities, investigators were able to link the suspects to property from Allen's home.
