WACO (June 19, 2013)-- Juan Francisco Segovia, 25, was held Wednesday in the McLennan County Jail after he was returned here from Montague County where he was arrested June 10 on a local murder warrant.

Segovia was awaiting bond on the murder charge and being held without bond on a U.S. Marshal's Service immigration detainer, jail records showed.

Segovia was arrested near Bowie, in Montague County, after the East Texas U.S. Marshal's Task Force found him hiding out in a motel and arrested him on the Waco police warrant.

Segovia was wanted in connection with the murder of Anthony Levell Degrate, 24, of Waco, who died in a local hospital after he was stabbed several times in the upper body following the early-morning argument on Oct. 14, 2012 in the parking lot of Club Alazan at 6512 West Waco Drive.

Police said the argument started in the parking lot between Degrate, who was a passenger in one vehicle, and a man who was riding in a second vehicle.

The two vehicles pulled out of the parking lot and onto the Highway 84 access road where they both stopped at a red light.

While they were stopped, a man got out of the second vehicle and approached the vehicle in which Degrate was riding.

Degrate got out and the two men began to fight, police said.

After Degrate was stabbed, the other man ran back to his vehicle and fled, police said.

Officers found Degrate lying in the road in the 6400 block of West Waco Drive.
