A 38-year-old Nederland man has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a woman in the parking lot of the Southeast Texas daycare where she worked.
Nederland police say Travis Wade Smith is in custody having surrendered at the police station. Smith's attorney did not immediately return a call to The Associated Press.
Police Chief Darrell Bush said 36-year-old Hollie Crenshaw was killed around 6 a.m. Friday as she prepared to open the Round the Clock Child Development Center in Nederland, located between Beaumont and Port Arthur.
Bush says the alleged shooter is believed to be the woman's boyfriend.
Police said the man pulled into the parking lot and fired three shots as the woman was getting out of her car.
No children were present.
