Verdict Rendered in Bench Trial of Tony Crayton

8TH District Court Judge Eddie Northcutt announced Wednesday morning that he has determined that Tony Crayton of Sulphur Springs is guilty of murder.  The decision followed two-days of testimony before Judge Northcutt by District Attorney Will Ramsey and Defense Attorney Martin Braddy.  Judge Northcutt set the sentencing phase of the trial for November 24-25 in his court.  Crayton is on trial for the October 2013 murder of his wife, Jessica Tyler Townsend Crayton, whose body was discovered by police officers in her Morris Street home.  A short time later, police were told that Crayton had jumped off of the League Street Bridge onto I-30 injuring himself.
