Man charged in connection with shooting death of gas station clerk

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of a woman killed while working at a gas station in northwest Harris County.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez sent a tweet Friday night saying 20-year-old Marcus Kenneth Cox-Davis was arrested during a traffic stop.



Gonzalez said on March 8, 2019, two men went inside the Shell gas station on Perry Road near FM-1960 where they robbed and killed Donna Pena.

"At the time of the murder, it was believed that the suspects could be part of a robbery crew," said Gonzalez in a tweet.

Harris County homicide investigators released surveillance video of the killers last year.

"There is no higher crime than murder and it's rewarding for all when we can help bring some relief to a grieving family."
