Irving man gets death penalty for killing his girlfriend and her daughter

By Jennifer Emily -

August 29, 2012

It took less than three hours Wednesday for a Dallas County jury to impose a death sentence on a man who admitted brutally and fatally stabbing his girlfriend and her daughter in a fit of rage and jealousy.

One of the jurors began sniffing and then tears streamed down her face as state District Judge Mark Stoltz formally sentenced Tyrone Cade to death for the murders of 37-year-old Mischell Fuller and 18-year-old Desaree Hoskins.

Cade, 37, appeared to take the verdict in stride, stroking his chin with his left hand as he sat next to his attorneys.

The same jury last week rejected an insanity defense and convicted Cade of capital murder. Cade told police that he stabbed the women dozens of times at their Irving home in March 2011 after secretly recording Fuller having a provocative Skype conversation with her ex-husband.

Cade, who had been convicted of sexual assault in Collin County in 2002, then raped Fuller.

To determine Cade’s punishment, jurors had to decide whether they believed Cade would commit a future act of violence. They answered yes and then considered whether there was anything mitigating in Cade’s background that would warrant a life sentence instead of death. Jurors voted that there was not.

Hoskins’ aunt, Andrea Hoskins Coats, wiped away tears as she approached the witness stand to address Cade in a victim impact statement after he was sentenced.

“I don’t think you really grasp what you did. I don’t think you understand what you stole,” she said in a soft voice. “I can’t believe you would do something to this extent and still fight for your life when you didn’t allow them to.”

Noting that defense attorneys had asked the jury to show Cade mercy with a sentence of life without parole instead of death, Coats told Cade: “You don’t deserve mercy. You are a monster.”

Fuller, who worked at a rehabilitation facility, was a native of Belize who moved to the U.S. when she was 9 and later became an American citizen. Hoskins had been looking forward to prom and graduation. She was hoping to join the Navy.

Fuller had been trying to get Cade to move out of her home and the two had not had sex for months at the time of the murders, according to testimony. Both Fuller’s son and Hoskins did not like Cade and didn’t want their mother dating him.

After the verdict, Brandy Besio, the mother of Cade’s 12-year-old daughter, sobbed alone on a bench in the hallway as she rocked back and forth. Cade confessed to the murders to Besio, who drove him to the police station where he told police about what he had done, according to testimony.

“There’s nothing to say,” Besio said Wednesday, wiping her nose and eyes with her shirt. “My daughter loses her dad on top of her stepmom and stepsister.”

In Coats’ victim impact statement, Coats told Cade that she would “pray you never see” the daughter again. Coats said she didn’t want his thoughts passed on to the girl.

The family of Fuller and Hoskins declined to comment further.

In closing arguments, prosecutors Heath Harris, Rachael Jones and Jason Hermus told jurors that Cade deserved to die for his crimes.

Harris urged jurors to send a message to other batterers and impose a death sentence on Cade.

If you “act like the worst of the worst, then we will punish you like the worst of the worst,” Harris said during closing arguments.

Jones told jurors Cade was a manipulator and “an evil capital murderer who will be a threat every day for the rest of his life.”

Defense attorneys Lalon “Clipper” Peale, John Tatum and Richard Franklin urged jurors to show mercy.

They said that Cade’s background — a broken home, emotional abandonment, an allegation of sexual abuse by his late mother, low IQ, depression, constant back pain from a football injury — were enough for jurors to vote for the lesser sentence.

Cade’s father also suffers from a bipolar disorder and schizophrenia but there is no evidence Cade suffers more than mild depression brought on by his legal situation.

Peale said that Cade’s background is “not an excuse, it’s an explanation.”


Victim of 1999 rape testifies in sentencing phase for man who killed girlfriend, her daughter

By Jennifer Emily -

August 27, 2012

The brutality Tyrone Cade inflicted by stabbing his girlfriend and her daughter dozens of times was first on display more than a decade earlier when he raped a woman who befriended him at a laundromat.

The woman that Cade, 39, was convicted of raping at her Collin County apartment testified Monday before the Dallas County jury that will decide whether he receives a death sentence or life without parole for the murders.

Back in 1999, when Cade sexually assaulted her, the woman was 21, going to college and working for a broadcasting company. Today, she’s 33, pregnant and in jail on drug charges.

The woman told jurors during the punishment phase of Cade’s trial that throughout the assault, Cade repeatedly told her: “Don’t make me kill you like the last girl.”

The woman is not being named because The Dallas Morning News does not typically name victims of sex crimes. She cried or choked back tears throughout her testimony and wore a green-and-gray-striped jail uniform.

The woman was charged in 2003 with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver. She was given deferred adjudication probation, which was later revoked. Neither her testimony or court records indicated the reason.

She testified that she had been promised nothing from prosecutors about her drug cases in exchange for her testimony against Cade in the murders of Mishell Fuller, 37, and 18-year-old Desaree Hoskins in March 2011 at their Irving home.

Cade appeared to watch the woman intently as she testified, leaning forward in his seat. This was a marked difference from his demeanor before jurors found him guilty of capital murder Friday. For the first week of the trial, Cade almost always slumped to the left in his seat and often had a hand over his face.

Fuller had been trying to end her relationship with Cade and was rekindling a romance with her ex-husband when he killed her. He refused to leave her home and had secretly recorded a provocative Skype conversation between Fuller and her ex-husband.

Cade confessed to the murders and to sexually assaulting Fuller after he stabbed her.

Another woman testified Monday that Cade followed her for months after she broke up with him in the 1990s. She testified that he would call frequently from a pay phone near her home. He finally left her alone.

The woman Cade sexually assaulted told jurors they were just friends when the assault happened. She testified that they’d never gone on a date and nothing sexual had ever happened between them.

The woman told jurors that she invited Cade to go out for drinks with her and her coworkers. Afterward, she showed him her new apartment. But when she tried to leave to go to her boyfriends’ house, Cade raped her, she testified.

As soon as she put her hand on the door knob, she said, he grabbed her arm and threw her to the floor.

The woman said the more she struggled, the rougher he got. He held onto her wrist tightly to keep her from moving away, and at times used his body weight to keep her from getting off the floor, and later, her bed.

“The more I fought, the worse it got,” she said tearfully, at times covering her face with a tissue. “He was just too strong for me to get away from.”

To save her life, she said, she pretended to consent and “tried to make him think it was OK.” She even convinced him to use a condom. At one point, she was able to grab a small knife and stab him. But the wound was superficial and the assault continued.

After the assault, he left behind a belt, shirt and a picture of him and his girlfriend.

The following day, Cade left her a voicemail, she said. “He said he was ‘sorry.’ ”

The woman said she didn’t tell her parents about the rape because “I was so ashamed.”

The case went to court in 2002 and a Collin County jury gave Cade three years’ probation.

“He took everything from me … and he didn’t get anything for it,” she testified.

Cade violated probation in 2003 and a judge ordered him to prison for three years. According to testimony, Cade was kicked out of sex offender treatment. He refused orders preventing him from being around children because he wanted to see his daughter and he denied the rape occurred.

Many details about what happened before and sometimes during the rape were fuzzy, the woman said. They may have smoked marijuana before. She said she couldn’t remember.

Prosecutor Rachael Jones asked the woman if she tried to forget the sexual assault.

“Everyday,” the woman responded.

But she said she can’t.


Dallas County jurors find man guilty of capital murder, reject insanity defense

By Jennifer Emily -

August 24, 2012

A Dallas County jury on Friday found a man guilty of capital murder, rejecting his claims that he didn’t know right from wrong when he killed his girlfriend and her daughter.

The punishment phase of Tyrone Cade’s trial will begin Monday as prosecutors ask jurors to send him to death row for the brutal stabbing deaths of 37-year-old Mischell Fuller and 18-year-old Desaree Hoskins in March 2011 at their Irving home.

Jurors deliberated nearly 90 minutes before reaching the guilty verdict.

After the presiding juror read the verdict, Cade sat in his chair, slumped to the left with a hand over his face – a common position throughout the trial. When he stood as jurors filed out of the courtroom, he closed his eyes. The family of Fuller and Hoskins left without commenting.

Defense attorneys Lalon “Clipper” Peale, Richard Franklin and John Tatum tried to convince jurors that Cade, 39, was not guilty by reason of insanity – meaning a mental disease or defect prevented him from knowing right from wrong.

They said physical and sexual abuse as a child, chronic back pain, depression, unemployment, suspicions that Fuller cheated on him and Fuller trying to end their relationship culminated in a mental break that led to the murders.

“He snapped. He went off the chain,” Peale told jurors in closing arguments. “They build up and build up.”

But prosecutors Heath Harris, Jason Hermus and Rachael Jones told jurors that killing the women was an evil act and that Cade knew exactly what he was doing when he stabbed Fuller and then Hoskins.

“The insanity defense – are you kidding me?” Harris said to jurors, telling them that the stabbings of the women and rape of Fuller was about “dominance,” “control,” “punishing” and “retribution.”

A doctor who examined Cade for prosecutors found that he was not insane at the time of the murders, according to testimony. Defense experts who reviewed records and literature testified that it was possible Cade did not know right from wrong. But because they did not interview Cade, they could not offer a definitive opinion.

Since Cade’s arrest, he has been treated for minor depression, according to testimony. But there was no prior indication of a history of mental illness, although his father suffers from schizophrenia and a bipolar disorder.

Cade admitted to police that he stabbed the women after secretly recording Fuller having a provocative Skype conversation with her ex-husband.

Cade told police in a video recorded interview that he tried to question Fuller at knife point at their Irving home about the conversation. But he said he stabbed her because she would not be silent. Cade said he stabbed Hoskins when she ran into the room after hearing her mother’s screams.

Cade was previously convicted of sexual assault in Collin County in 2002.


Irving murder suspect looks away as prosecutors show autopsy photos

By Jennifer Emily -

August 21, 2012

Tyrone Cade looked away Tuesday to avoid seeing autopsy photos showing the stab wounds he inflicted on his girlfriend and her daughter.

Cade, 39, covered his eyes with his left hand and hung his head as prosecutors showed jurors the images of Mischell Fuller, 37, and her 18-year-old daughter, Desaree Hoskins, on large television screens during his capital murder trial in a Dallas courtroom.

Most of the jurors probably could not see Cade. Three prosecutors, audio visual equipment, two desks and three defense attorneys sat between Cade and the jury box.

Cade, who turned himself in to Irving police and confessed to the March 2011 slayings, faces a possible death sentence if jurors convict him of capital murder. The defense plans to argue that the jury should find him not guilty by reason of insanity, meaning Cade had a mental disease or defect that caused him not to know right from wrong at the time of the slayings.

Prosecutors say Cade killed Fuller and Hoskins because Cade was jealous and angry. He had recorded Fuller having a provocative conversation on Skype with her ex-husband, Carlton Hoskins.

Forensic pathologist Jill Urban testified that Hoskins had 39 wounds and Fuller had 28. One of the wounds to Hoskins’ neck went into her spinal cord. Both women had knife injuries that penetrated their lungs.

In a video of an interview with Irving police played for jurors, Cade admitted stabbing Fuller and then Hoskins. He admitted sexually assaulting Fuller, who had been trying to make him move out of her house. They had not had sex for several months, Cade said.

Cade cried throughout the videotaped interview. He was often difficult to understand because he was sobbing or mumbling. Prosecutors provided jurors with a transcript of the video.

At the end of the interview, Cade said to police: “How fast can I go to trial and get it over with? … Get the death penalty, man … just get it over with. I’m just in a hurry, man. I’m ready to die, dude. Wish I could speed it up. I don’t want to have to go through no trial.”

Cade told police that he came home after spending the evening with his cousin at a strip club, according to testimony. He then listened to a recorder he’d set up to document what Fuller did while he was gone. The recording captured the Skype conversation Fuller had with her ex-husband.

Cade said he then tossed and turned in bed before waking up Fuller and pointing the knife at her. He told police that he just wanted to question Fuller. But he started stabbing Fuller when she wouldn’t remain quiet. Cade said Fuller fell off the bed trying to get away from him.

Cade said he stabbed Hoskins when she came to help her mother.

After the slayings, Cade said, he took pictures around the house out of frames and photo albums and burned them.

Empty frames and albums were found in a black trash bag inside the house. Charred remains of photos were found in a grill.

Earlier testimony indicated that when Fuller was mad at Cade, she would take down photos of Cade, which upset him.

Cade was convicted of sexual assault in Collin County in 2002. Starting in 2007, when Fuller bought the house, Cade used her home as his address when he registered as a sex offender, according to testimony.

Testimony is expected to resume Wednesday.


Dallas County death penalty trial underway for man accused of killing girlfriend and her teenage daughter

By Jennifer Emily -

August 20, 2012

Dallas County First Assistant District Attorney Heath Harris told jurors in opening arguments that they should have no difficulty convicting Tyrone Cade of capital murder.

“This case is not a complex mystery,” he said.

Harris told jurors that Cade killed Mischell Fuller, 37, and her 18-year-old daughter, Desaree Hoskins because Cade was jealous. He had recorded Fuller having an intimate conversation on Skype with her exhusband, Carlton Hoskins, and was angry.

Cade, Harris said, was a “wannabee ladies man.”

Cade could “turn on the charm in the blink of an eye, turn on the tears in the blink of eye,” Harris said. “But he could also turn on the aggression in the blink of an eye.”

Harris told jurors that the defense planned to prove Cade was not guilty by reason of insanity, meaning the defense believes Cade had a mental disease or defect at the time of the slayings that cause him not to know the difference between right and wrong.

Defense attorneys Lalon “Clipper” Peale, John Tatum and Richard Franklin delayed making an opening statement, so no further details were provided to jurors before a lunch break.

Irving Police Officer Aaron Shook testified that Cade turned himself in at the police station, saying that “he had killed a couple of people.”

Shook told jurors that he grabbed a knife to question Fuller but then she screamed for her daughter and started kicking. He then stabbed them both to death.

Shook said that Cade handed over three cell phones and one of them appeared to have blood on it.

On a recording of 911 call made from the lobby of the police station before talking to officers, Cade appears to be crying as he says, “I killed two people … Yeah, I killed them … I stabbed them to death.”

Cade says on the 911 call: “I just snapped.”

He said that he wishes he could get the death penalty. He said he also tried to kill himself but he was “too punkish” to go through with it.

Fuller’s mother, Elena Belcher, tearfully testified about her daughter and granddaughter, struggling to maintain her composure on the witness stand. She began sobbing when prosecutors showed her photos of her daughter and granddaughter.

Belcher told jurors that her daughter was afraid of Cade because he threatened to burn the house down with her in it after Fuller asked Cade to move out. Fuller had wanted Cade to leave for some time after finding out he was a registered sex offender, according to testimony.

About a week before their deaths, Fuller and her daughter went to Florida where they went to Disney World and saw Fuller’s ex-husband, who also the father of her children, according to testimony.


Mother, Daughter Found Stabbed to Death in Irving

March 28, 2011

Police say a mother and daughter were found slain at an Irving home after a man walked into the police department Sunday night and admitted to the killings.

Irving police said Tyrone Cade, a 38-year-old registered sex offender, told officers he had killed two people at his home in the 1400 block of Ronne Drive.

Officers went to the residence and found the bodies of Mischell Fuller, 37; and her daughter, Desaree Hoskins, 18, both of Irving.

Investigators said Cade admitted to stabbing Fuller, his live-in girlfriend, after he heard her talking with her former husband on a recording from a device Cade left under the bed.

Police said Hoskins was stabbed while trying to save her mother.

Irving police said Cade considered suicide and even left he note. More than 16 hours after he killed Fuller and Hoskins, he turned himself in, police said.

Police say Cade confessed in police lobby

Investigators said Cade walked into the front lobby of the Irving Police Department at about 8:30 p.m. and called 911.

"When he came in here -- at that late at night, there's not anyone here," Officer John Argumaniz said. "So what he did was, he used his phone, and then he called and he said, 'Hey, I want to talk to an officer about what took place, so they sent an officer here to talk to him."

Police said it appeared Cade, Fuller and Hoskins all lived at the residence.

Cade has been charged with one count of capital murder.

Friends mourn mother, daughter

A makeshift memorial is growing outside Cade's south Irving home.

"We didn't see this coming," said Norma Argueta, a friend of Fuller's. "We did not expect that anything like this would happen to her. We were looking forward to our children graduating high school, and she was moving on for the next chapter in her life."

Dozens of shaken students at Irving High School spoke with grief counselors Monday.

"[A] lot of people are suffering today because of her loss," said J. Pat Lamb of the Irving Independent School District. "It's a testament to her character. They liked her; she liked them."

Hoskins, who friends called Dee Dee, was about to graduate.

"Class of 2011 won't be the same without her," said Stephanie Delfin, a friend. "She was, she was part of us, and when we graduate, it's going to be for her. This is all for her now."
