Last October, it took a Collin County jury just three hours to sentence Kosoul Chanthakoummane to death for the July 2006 murder of real estate agent Sarah Anne Walker. Walker, as you no doubt recall, was showing a model home in The Hemingway at Craig Ranch in McKinney when Chanthakoummane beat and stabbed Walker to death; the story made national news for months as McKinney sought Walker's killer. Today, courtesy Courthouse News, we discover the tale's not yet ended, as Walker's family is taking her former employer to court: "D.R. Horton and D.R. Horton-Texas Ltd. failed to pay commissions that Sarah Anne Walker earned before she was murdered while showing houses for the real-estate company, Walker's estate claims in Tarrant County Court." --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
