The suspect involved in Monday’s pair of armed robberies was arraigned Tuesday by Justice of the Peace Kirby Hill.
Zachory Cabano, 21, of Corsicana, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery after allegedly using a gun to hold up the Valero Service Station on North 45th Street, and the MQ Food Mart on North Beaton Street.
Hill set bonds totaling $200,000 on Cabano.
Also arraigned Tuesday on a charge of aggravated assault was Paul Jones, 33, of Corsicana. Jones is being held in connection with an alleged assault Sunday. Sheriff’s deputies responding to a report of an assault found Steven Felder, 45, of Corsicana, unresponsive on Regal Row near Roane. Felder was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Sheriff Elmer Tanner said Tuesday a preliminary autopsy report indicates Felder died of blunt force trauma to the head. Tanner said the investigation is continuing. Hill set a $50,000 bond on Jones.

Local man killed in heater accident
The autopsy on Roy Alfred Samsel, 80, has revealed the Corsicana man died of injuries from burns after trying to light a gas-fired heater.
Around 8:49 a.m. on Nov. 24, Samsel was trying to light a gas heater in his home in the 2200 block of West Park Row when it flared up on him. Emergency Medical Technicians responded from the Corsicana Fire Department, as did an air ambulance crew from PhI, which flew him to Parkland Hospital’s trauma center in Dallas.
He died in Dallas, and an autopsy was performed at Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences.
“No foul play is suspected. It was an accidental death,” said Police Chief Randy Bratton. “His death was due to thermal injuries — the burns.”
Funeral services for Samsel were this past weekend at Resthaven Memorial Park.
