PLANO (WBAP/KLIF News) – A Plano man who fled to Mexico after he was accused of murdering his father earlier this month was arrested on Tuesday.
The Plano Police Department’s David Tilley said Kenneth Alleman Midgely II was taken into custody at DFW Airport by detectives in his department and the U.S Marshal’s Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force.
Kenneth Alleman Midgely Senior was found dead inside his home on Nocona Drive April 15th, after his daughter called police for a welfare check. His son was nowhere to be found.
Tilley said investigators obtained surveillance video showing the suspect, Midgley II, crossing the border into Mexico.
He said because this case appears to be a domestic incident, the family may have mixed emotions about his arrest.
“They’re said for the fact that a family member committed this crime but they’re sad for the loss of their family member. It’s a tragic situation either way you go,” he said.
He said the arrest, although bittersweet, can bring some closure to the family.
“He has been taken into custody. He at least is safe at this point in time…he’s not out there with them not knowing if he’s still alive…they at least know that. Hopefully, they’re going to just let the judicial process take place and then go from there,” he said.
Midgely II is being held in the Collin County Jail on a murder charge and a $500,000 bond.
