Eric Johnson allegedly killed Sarah Mutschlechner 

Judge Bruce McFarling of the 362nd District Court will give an unspecified announcement on the case of Eric Johnson at 8:30 a.m., March 31. Johnson is being charged with the murder of Sarah Mutschlechner, the UNT student and Zeta Tau Alpha sorority member who was fatally shot on Jan. 1 while driving a car full of people.

The parents of Ryan McMillan and their attorney are still seeking information on what happened to lead to their 21-year-old son’s death by a UNT police officer.

Higginbotham-Brooks said that depending on what their investigation finds a lawsuit may be filed by the family under the 19.83 civil statute, which deals with the deprivation of constitutional rights.

UNT said to have mishandled sexual violence case last year

UNT student identified as Jane Doe filed sexual assault charges against the university for not properly handling the investigation of her alleged sexual assault.

The UNT Board of Regents and UNT Denton president Neal Smatresk are named in the suit. State attorneys filed Wednesday for the case to be dismissed. The state argues UNT did not break the law because there was no “deliberate indifference” on the part of Smatresk or the Board of Regents.

Updates prepared by senior staff writer Adalberto Toledo and staff writers Chelsea Watkins and Laura Cortez.
