Gilbert Man Murdered for Marijuana: Thugs Staked Out Home, Beat Him to Death

Police arrived too late to stop the crime: They found Mullins bound, gagged, and lifeless.

Torre Sanders, 20, and Jordan Hosey, 17, were caught inside the house and booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and burglary.

The teen confessed to the crime after being caught, according to a booking sheet by Gilbert police.

Hosey told cops that he and Sanders learned that Mullins was “dealing drugs” and that they watched him while planning to assault him and steal his money and goods. On Monday evening, they drove up to the home on North Cottonwood Court and sneaked into the backyard.

Mullins had a heavy-duty security door at the front of his home. Apparently, from their surveillance they knew he’d come out to the backyard to smoke a cigarette at some point. When Mullins finally emerged for his smoke, Hosey and Sanders attacked him.

From an upstairs patio window, the neighbor had seen the pair enter the backyard dressed in hoodies and carrying flashlights. She saw the men force open Mullins’ back door and take him inside “while continually assaulting the victim,” records state.

She called police, who were dispatched to the home just before 9 p.m. She kept watching and could see the

Police to arrest 10 people in LSU fraternity pledge’s death

Ten people will be arrested on hazing charges in the death of a Louisiana State University fraternity pledge after a night of drinking, LSU officials said Wednesday.

One of the 10 suspects, Matthew Alexander Naquin, also faces a negligent homicide charge in the death last month of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Roswell, Georgia, LSU said in a statement.

Eight of the suspects are LSU students and were active members of the fraternity, according to university spokesman Ernie Ballard. He said all 10 are expected to be jailed Wednesday once they turn themselves in to LSU police.

“The LSU Police Department has communicated with the Gruver family throughout the investigation process, and the university has also been in touch with them regarding today’s arrests,” LSU’s statement says.

Gruver died at a Baton Rouge hospital on Sept. 14 after Phi Delta Theta members found him lying on a couch at the fraternity house and couldn’t tell if he was breathing, police said.

A coroner said hospital tests found a “highly elevated” blood-alcohol level in Gruver’s body.

Witnesses told police that the fraternity’s pledges were forced to drink to excess on the night before Gruver’s
