Man Charged In Burglary Of Dead Texas Woman’s Home

DALLAS (July 1, 2013)—Gary Anthony Sanders, 50, was in custody Monday after he was arrested in the burglary of a Dallas home where a 73-year-old woman was killed last week.

Police say Sanders was arrested Sunday and charged with burglary of a habitation.

He remained in Dallas County jail Monday in lieu of $50,000 bond.

Penny Terk was found stabbed, shot and strangled in her Red Bird-area home on Friday afternoon.

The former schoolteacher ran a website to connect book reviewers to book clubs for fees.

Terk's daughter called police Friday.

She went to the house after not hearing from her mother in several days and found the residence in disarray.

She told police that a television, lawn trimmers, leaf blowers, jewelry and a washer and dryer were stolen from the home.
