It's been a brutal couple of weeks for Dallas chef Marc Haines. Haines, current sales manager for Sysco Food Services of Dallas, former chef for Larry North's North-South, Sipango, and Cuba Libre, and avid comic book creator, just returned from Arizona this weekend where he delivered a eulogy before more than 350 people after burying his 20-year-old sister Virginia Nicole "Niki" Hall. Hall was brutally murdered and her body sexually assaulted July 11 in her apartment in Tempe, Arizona. Police arrested and charged Jody Lee Cline, also 20, with first-degree murder. Cline, who was a friend of Hall's and had been staying with her in her apartment, claimed a "voice" told him to commit the crime. --Mark Stuertz
