Frisco man arrested for September murder

Posted: Updated:
MELISSA, Texas -

A Frisco man is facing charges in the murder of his ex-fiance, she was found shot to death in Melissa, Texas last September.

In May of 2013, Nicole Leger, 34, went into hiding with her son.  She told police her ex-fiance Michael Adams, 50, had raped and beat her.  Leger was able to get a restraining order against Adams and he was also charged with aggravated sexual assault and unlawful restraint.  Leger's family and investigators think that's why Adams killed her.  On September 9th, her son arrived home from school to find his mother dead.  

Adams was arrested Friday night, police surrounded his home and neighbors say it looked like a SWAT team broke down the door.

The arrest comes as a relief to Nicole's family, who had felt her killer got away and they hope she can finally have justice.

Police will not discuss the case, saying only that they want to protect the integrity of the investigation.
