A Dallas County 18-year-old has been charged with capital murder and robbery in the death of a 58-year-old man this week.

Dallas County authorities say Stephen Sizemore was shot and killed in his home off Dallas County Road 74.

It is believed Sizemore was killed on Sunday. Family members checked on him after not hearing from him and found his body Wednesday.

John Murray is accused of using Sizemore's .22 rifle to shoot him below the ear. Sgt. Mike Granthum says Murray confessed to the crime because he wanted to get it off his chest.

Sizemore ran what you might call a small flea market type business out of his home, and Murray was reportedly a regular customer.

Detectives aren't sure what led to the shooting. They do tell us less than $100 was taken.

Murray has a lengthy rap sheet. He remains in the Dallas County Jail with his initial court appearance set for early next week.
