Police said his crimes are becoming more brazen and that he uses a Glock semi-automatic pistol.

Woman Stabbed Returning Ring
An East Texas man is accused of stabbing his fiancee multiple times as she returned his engagement ring. Smith County Jail records show 32-year-old Shaun Mark Lawler of Whitehouse is held on an aggravated assault/family violence charge, with bond set at $300,000. Whitehouse police Chief Rick Waller said 23-year-old Jessica Rene Wimpee was stabbed while at a trophy and storage facility operated by Lawler's family. Waller did not provide further details Wednesday on the hospitalized woman's condition. Waller told The Associated Press that Lawler turned himself in Monday night, a few hours after the attack. Whitehouse is about 100 miles southeast of Dallas.

Red Oak Officer Resigns
A Red Oak police officer arrested in April by the Dallas police has resigned before the investigation into his domestic violence charge was complete. Charles David Moses was with Red Oak Police Department for about five years, according to the police chief. He was a patrol officer. Moses’ court case is set for July 25.
Woman Wields Knife On Bus
DART has released information about a woman arrested last week after a DART train operator accused her of standing in the aisle, holding a knife and screaming at passengers on the train. Rosalind Renee Kirven, 54, even threatened a male passenger with the knife, according to the police report. Before officers got to the train, witnesses told police Kirven exited the train and threatened more people -- including a bus operator -- with the knife. Officers said Kirven resisted arrest when they approached her and she had to be pepper sprayed. No passengers or DART employees were injured in the kerfuffle.
