      Court records show that Hooker is being charged with a felony count of murder. Hooker is being held at the Lubbock County Detention Center on $500,000 bond. Jail records do not list an attorney.


      Police responded to a disturbance at the law office, which had living quarters, in the early morning hours of July 23 after getting a call about a fight between two men.


      A motive has not been revealed.
