Khamran Thomas killed March 31, 2014

Police say Khamran Thomas was stabbed by his sister, Khyla Nichole Thomas, 22, after an argument at the Irving apartment they shared with their mother. The siblings worked together at a Whataburger, where co-workers said they got along well.

Witnesses said Khyla stabbed Khamran after he “tried to get to Khyla.”

Drops of blood were still visible in a hallway outside the apartment days after the stabbing. A neighbor said they had heard a ruckus at the apartment the night of the incident: "We heard someone say, ‘Help me, please help me.'"
