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.
