The release said Ashley Williams was killed during the course of a robbery.Ramirez told police Roberts had taken his vehicle without his consent, the probable cause affidavit said.District Attorney Bobby Bland said a capital murder charge requires the murder to be committed while committing another crime, such as robbery or burglary, and has stricter penalties than first-degree murder.The penalty for first-degree murder is 5 to 99 years in prison with possibility of parole, while capital murder is either life in prison without parole or death.Bland said they have decided to waive the death penalty for Roberts at this point, but that has the possibility to change during the course of the trial.Ramirez was also indicted by a grand jury on two counts of sexual assault of a child, but Bland said the case is unrelated to Williams’ murder.Jail records show Roberts is currently in the Ector County Detention Center and has two bonds totaling $1,025,000.Roberts has an arraignment to be formally issued the charges scheduled for 3 p.m. March 19, court records show. The hearing will take place in the 161st District Court of Judge John Smith.

first_imgThe Latest: Nebraska athletics announces furloughs, pay cuts Associated Press ___There will be no fans for the Denver Broncos’ season opener against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night Sept. 14 because of the COVID-19 crisis.The Broncos said Friday they hope to have fans at subsequent games. The team has sold out every home game since the 1960s.The Broncos have been working with the Colorado governor’s office, using computer-generated plans that include up to 20,000 fans at Empower Field at Mile High.But the team said having an empty stadium for the opener was the “responsible thing to do right now for our community.” Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___Nebraska is putting 51 athletic department employees on furlough and all others will take a 10% pay cut in response to the budget crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. In a statement, athletics director Doug Gillin said the team will return to work in small groups or “pods.” The program is also implementing “more stringent capacity limits” on shared facilities such as the locker room or weight room.The school said Tuesday night there have been active cases for seven students and four staffers associated with the team. Gillin’s statement Friday said the team went through scheduled testing on Wednesday before the school cleared the way for a return to workouts.___Iowa will drop four sports programs at the end of the 2020-21 academic year in response to the financial hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic.School President Bruce Harreld and athletic director Gary Barta said in a joint statement that a projected revenue loss of $100 million forced the university to discontinue men’s gymnastics, men’s tennis and men’s and women’s swimming and diving. ___French league clubs Monaco and Lens both say one of their players has tested positive for the coronavirus.Monaco did not name the player but says he is recovering and that the club has informed league officials.Monaco is scheduled to play at home against Reims on Sunday in the opening weekend of the season.Lens defender Jonathan Clauss has also tested positive for the virus. Lens coach Franck Haise says Clauss is showing no symptoms and is in isolation from the rest of the squad. The furloughs and pay cuts will be in effect from Sept. 1 through Dec. 31.“The postponement of the fall sports season, and specifically the football season, has put us in the position of making some very difficult decisions that impact every member of our staff,” athletic director Bill Moos said. “In my three decades as an athletic director, I have always said that people are our most valuable resource and there is no question that is true here at Nebraska. These are outstanding staff members and great people, and that is what makes this a particularly tough day.”The measures are in addition to department cuts announced in June that included a 10% reduction in overall expenses for the 2021 fiscal year, no merit raises and the elimination of 17 jobs. In total, staffing decisions are expected to result in a savings of about $3 million.___Appalachian State’s football team is returning to practice Friday after pausing workouts because of a coronavirus cluster. August 21, 2020 The University of Louisiana-Monroe has paused football practices because of nine new positive COVID-19 tests earlier this week, athletic director Scott McDonald said Friday.McDonald says ULM hopes to resume practice by early next week as soon as ongoing testing indicates it is safe to do so.“We fully anticipated an increased exposure to COVID-19 with the reopening of campus, the beginning of the fall semester as well as uptick in related off-campus activities,” McDonald said. “We also knew that we would have to work to create a modified student-athlete bubble once classes and on-campus activities resumed this month. “We’ll await the latest round of test results while continuing to monitor our quarantined and isolated student-athletes.” ULM officials say the school has administered 1,404 virus and antibody tests combined to athletes and staff across all sports since mid-June. So far, 34 total tests have been positive. The Warhawks football team is slated to open its season Sept. 5 at Troy. ___The Southeastern Conference has modified its previously announced requirements for COVID-19 testing.The league has outlined specific cardiac evaluation requirements from its initial report and will have a third, rapid test close to competition for sports with a high risk of close contact.The SEC’s Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force has now specified the cardiac evaluation would mandate a troponin level, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram and a medical evaluation by a physician.___ ___Vanderbilt has canceled Friday’s practice after some positive COVID-19 test results.The private Southeastern Conference university is not sharing the number of positive results. But Vanderbilt issued a statement noting the university’s ongoing testing procedures has “positive COVID-19 test results.”Vanderbilt says it is working closely with its Public Health Command Center and other health officials assessing potential close contacts and advising on additional steps. But Vanderbilt cites federal student privacy law in not disclosing information that could identify any student who has tested positive.SEC schools started practice Monday with the league set to start a 10-game, league-only season Sept. 26. The athletic department deficit is projected at $60 million to $75 million this year.The four sports programs will compete in 2020-21 if circumstances surrounding COVID-19 permit. Existing scholarships will be honored through graduation for athletes who remain at Iowa. The contracts of affected coaches will be honored.Among factors considered for which sports to cut were number of schools sponsoring teams at the Division I level; impact on gender equity and Title IX compliance; expense savings; history of the sport at Iowa; and engagement level.Iowa is the second school from a Power Five conference to drop sports programs. Stanford announced last month it would cut 11 sports.Nearly 200 sports programs across three NCAA divisions and the NAIA have been eliminated since the coronavirus pandemic began in the United States in March. Newly-promoted Lens is also in action on Sunday.

Kraig Kinser Racing and Roth Motorsports said team members had tested positive and Knoxville Raceway said one of its employees had tested positive. “We’re fully aware that we’re managing a fluid situation,” ULM coach Matt Viator said. “While disappointed, we realized that the suspension of practice was a real possibility sometime this preseason. … Our team remains optimistic that we’ll be able to safely compete this fall.”___The Detroit Lions say they will not have fans at their first two home because of the COVID-19 pandemic.The team also announced Friday that parking lots near the stadium and businesses within the indoor facility will be closed when Detroit hosts the Chicago Bears on Sept. 13 and the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 4.The Lions may allow spectators to watch their game at Ford Field on Nov. 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. Series officials urged anyone at the track who had come into contact with those infected to get tested. Several other participants and family members tested positive following that notification.Fans were allowed at the races last weekend and also took part in autograph sessions. WoO says it will be reverting to the initial protocols in place when the series resumed racing earlier in the pandemic. Among the tightened restrictions will be closing the pit area to fans until further notice.The World of Outlaws says all affected parties must quarantine until medically cleared to return to the track. Drivers racing for season-long points now unable to race because of the positive test will receive points based on their average finish for the season until they are able to return.___More AP sports: and read more

Snap Counts: Phillip Lindsay, Bo Scarbrough, Derrius Guice, more potential fantasy breakouts, busts, waiver pickups

first_imgA week after seeing 12 targets, Everett played 14 snaps Sunday night. Higbee played 42.I don’t know what to make of this. No, I wouldn’t rush to pick up Higbee — and I definitely wouldn’t drop Everett — but another week of this at such a fickle position will leave you stuck with an unreliable TE in the fantasy playoffs. If nothing else, it’s time to grab an insurance policy like Jacob Hollister or even David Njoku (wrist), who should be back within a couple of weeks here. For snap count reactions for every team, click here. WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWe mentioned Scarbrough, too — you should try to pick him up on waivers if you need a running back. It’s just not obvious whether Detroit will just switch everything up on us again. That’s the concern we have with make any rash judgments off the Gerald Everett usage for the Rams, too — his playing time is down, but could it be a gameplan-based aberration?And then of course there’s Derrius Guice. We’ve been writing about him on this site for weeks, anticipating his return. His playing time in his first game back from injury was enough to have us feeling pretty confident about what’s to come for the former LSU star.Check out our 32-team breakdown of Week 10 snap counts here.LISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 12 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWBroncos Snap Counts: Phillip Lindsay vs. Royce FreemanThe reports on Sunday morning were curious: Lindsay was expected to get “much more work” than Royce Freeman, according to reporters on NFL Network. We sat there in our office and wondered why that would be. All season, this has been a nearly 50-50 split, and Freeman hasn’t really struggled. Yet by the end of Sunday’s games, those reports were spot on. Lindsay carried the ball 16 times to Freeman’s eight. Lindsay was on the field for 52 offensive plays, while Freeman played for just 24 snaps. That’s the widest gap, by a lot between the two of them this season.Because Lindsay also had a slightly better yards per carry, he didn’t squander away this opportunity. It looks like Denver may be looking to revert to the usage of last year where Lindsay was one of the league’s best rookies and Freeman was an afterthought. It’s probably time to start viewing Lindsay as an RB2 going forward.If this continues another week, Freeman will become basically unusable in fantasy once we’re past the bye weeks. You can’t really drop him this week — a Lindsay injury or return to earlier season usage would keep Freeman having value. But if Lindsay doubles him up in touches and playing time again, it’ll be obvious that Denver has finally handed the keys fully back to Lindsay. WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endLions Snap Counts: Bo Scarbrough vs. Ty Johnson vs. J.D. McKissicIt’s probably foolish to count on anything too concrete from the Lions’ backfield. Matt Patricia obviously likes messing with fantasy owners. But at least Sunday, it was Scarbrough who had the lead in carries and snaps (32). Johnson played 19 snaps and McKissic saw 15 plays. Scarbrough got the first-drive touchdown, too, just to really hammer home that it was his day. He’ll be one of the top waiver wire adds this week.It’s probably warranted. We really have nothing else to go on besides the fact that this has fluctuated a bunch already this season. So, maybe it’s fair to be cautious with Scarbrough, but he should still be added by fantasy owners in need of an RB.It might be worth it to hold Johnson for one more week, no matter how frustrating it may be to own him at this point. There’s a chance, albeit a small one, that Johnson’s workload was limited in part because he’d been less involved in the week’s gameplan with his return from a concussion not certain until Saturday. No one would be surprised if he and Scarbrough flipped places in Week 12 against Washington.MORE WEEK 12:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSRedskins Snap Counts: Derrius Guice vs. Adrian PetersonGuice and Peterson actually both trailed Wendell Smallwood in snaps Sunday. It broke down 31 to Smallwood, with 20 to Guice and 17 to AP. Garbage time likely had something to do with that breakdown, but it’s notable nonetheless. Peterson outcarried Guice, 9-7. Guice did have a 45-yard gain on a short pass that he turned upfield for a touchdown.Washington plays the Lions in Week 12, with Detroit allowing more fantasy points to running backs in 2019 than any other defense. It’d be nice if we could just point to one Redskins’ back and be done with it.The good news is that Guice already played more than Peterson despite Sunday being just Guice’s first game back from injury. You’d figure that, if anything, the younger RB’s workload would rise as the veteran’s would fall. That would favor Guice.If we had to speculate, Guice would see about 10 more snaps and maybe four or five more carries. A day with 12 carries against a bad defense, to go with a catch or two, puts Guice firmly in FLEX consideration. And that could always be conservative — maybe after a week of working him in, his workload will double in Week 12. WEEK 12 DFS LINEUPS: FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | Y! cash | Y! GPPCowboys Snap Counts: Michael Gallup vs. Amari Cooper vs. Randall CobbCooper played just the third-most snaps among Cowboys’ receivers Sunday as Gallup and Cobb both exceeded 100 yards. Because Cooper has battled injuries all season, that’s a bit concerning.For reference, Gallup played 61 snaps, Cobb played 46 and Cooper played 41. Gallup was the star of the day, as we’ve expected but not necessarily seen in games Cooper has missed altogether. It was also the third straight productive outing for Cobb.These snap counts seem to solidify Gallup as a solid fantasy WR3; it also shows that Cobb truly is a worthwhile FLEX play; and it should give a bit of worry to Cooper owners, who may want to spend a waiver claim on a WR as an insurance policy if Cooper’s health is getting worse and not better.MORE WEEK 12 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderRams Snap Counts: Gerald Everett vs. Tyler HigbeeI’m writing this section mostly because of how I did a double take when I looked at the Rams’ numbers. I’d written the tight end rankings earlier Monday morning, saw that Tyler Higbee had no targets, knew he had been battling injury and figured that he hadn’t played. But then I saw he, in fact, played — and a lot more than Everett. Earlier in the NFL season, the hope was that looking at snap counts would help us find some waiver wire gems. That could be true this week with Bo Scarbrough, but who really knows with that Lions’ backfield at this point? As we head into Week 12, there’s more data, which means that when something happens outside the norm, it’s either a more drastic outlier or it means a whole lot more. That happened with some different fantasy weapons this week, including Phillip Lindsay and Amari Cooper, and has us thinking one is about to break out in the fantasy playoffs while the other could be a disappointment.Let’s start with Lindsay. Sunday morning reports held true, as he dominated the work in the Denver backfield for the first time all season. In some sense, it’s about time he pushed Royce Freeman aside. Then you have Cooper, who’s battled injuries all season and had a concerningly depressed workload Sunday. Might it be a sign of something more?last_img read more
