The twin brother of the man suspected in the death of a Bellaire police officer is now in police custody

Dante Moore did not appear in probable cause court last Thursday as scheduled because of an undisclosed medical condition, but prosecutors detailed a portion of the case against him anyway.

The 27-year-old surrendered last Wednesday to Bellarie police, following the pursuit which began outside a Meyerland Target. Moore is accused of causing the death of Zarate. Prosecutors say Moore confessed to leading Zarate on a chase through residential streets at nearly 80 miles per hour after being stopped for an alleged shoplifting.

During the pursuit, Zarate lost control of his police motorcycle and struck a parked trailer.
