FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Fort Worth police are looking for a 37-year-old man named in a warrant that accuses him of capital murder for the slayings of two people – believed to be a woman and her elementary-school-age daughter – at an apartment complex.
    
Authorities say the man being sought, Paige Terrell Lawyer, should be considered dangerous.
    
A neighbor tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he was awakened Friday to screams from a woman who told him her sister was gone and there had been a murder.
    
Firefighters responding to a 911 call found the bodies.
    
The slain woman also had twin 4-year-olds who weren’t home at the time. They’ve been taking into protective custody.
