The story is they wanted the earnings from black Friday.


[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Two former American Eagle Outfitter employees are accused of beating, strangling and then setting on fire an assistant manager at a store in Fort Worth, Texas, to steal thousands of dollars of Black Friday sales.

Carter Cervantez, 25, and her boyfriend Clarence ‘David’ Mallory, 19, have been charged with capital murder in the Nov. 28 death of Ashlea Harris, 31, according to police documents released on Monday…

Cervantez and Mallory had been fired from the store at the Hulen Mall during the Summer after being suspected of stealing nearly $18,000 from the store’s safe.

Police believe the pair killed the woman and took Harris’s keys with plans to steal Black Friday profits of about $50,000 from the store, according to the affidavit.

The day after Harris’ murder, Cervantez was caught by surveillance cameras trying to open the doors to the store, but they had already changed the locks.

Mallory and Cervantez were taken to the Fort Worth Jail where they were booked on the capital murder warrant.
