Amarillo, TX - An Amarillo man is convicted and sentenced for a murder last summer.

The 47th District Attorney's office says Dustin Rhoades was convicted this week for the shooting death of Deans Anderson.

After less than an hour of deliberations, the same jury sentenced Rhoades to 40 years in prison.

Anderson was found shot to death at the Westminster Apartments on Coulter in southwest Amarillo, last June.

Rhoades and another suspect, CreeAnna Dawn, were arrested a week later. Dawn is expected to go to trial next month.

    Amarillo police will soon be able to process drug cases faster thanks to an upcoming addition to their staff. With a forensic scientist working directly for the department, narcotics cases can be closed in half the time they take now. Any drugs the APD seizes go to the DPS crime lab for analysis, where they have to wait to be processed behind any existing cases. "It could take anywhere from six weeks to eight weeks for us to get a return on a drug lab," said Off...
