Security Guard Arrested for Murder

A security guard is arrested and being held on $300,000 bond on the charge of murder at Travis County Jail. APD's Sergeant Jerry Bauzon says Robert Earl Goines II and Jonathan C. Cook were arguing at the Budget Lodge in North Austin Friday night. Cook left but only made it about half a mile down the road before crashing. However, the medical examiner ruled he died from a gunshot wounds, not the wreck.
