Police Make Arrest in Slaying of Collin County Single Mother

Police in the Collin County community of Melissa arrested a 50-year-old man in connection with the slaying of his ex-fiance.

The body of single mother Nicole Leger was discovered by her 17-year-old son in Sept., 2013.

As of Saturday afternoon, Michael Kevin Adams remained in the Collin County jail on $10 million bond and a capital murder charge.

Shortly before the woman's death, neighbors told NBC DFW that Leger moved in to a home in Melissa after living in Frisco.

She was described as a good mother to her son.

Police treated the case as a homicide because the body showed signs of trauma.

Leger's killing was the first murder in Melissa in recent memory.
