A Texas man was released from prison after serving his sentence for a 2006 murder. Two weeks later, police say he has been arrested for murder again.
On Oct. 28, 2006, police said the body of Paul David Shreve was found in an alley behind his house in Lubbock, Texas.
Police determined this was the second time 55-year-old David Brasfield attacked Shreve, as there was a stabbing assault in May 2006. This was shortly after Brasfield was released from custody on a drug-related state jail felony, Everything Lubbock reported.
At the time, police said Brasfield and Shreve knew each other. Officials said Brasfield stabbed Shreve multiple times before leaving him to die in the alley.
Court records state Brasfield told the court he has either suffered previously or been treated for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression, Everything Lubbock stated.

After a plea bargain in the 2006 case, Brasfield’s prison sentence expired on Oct. 27, 2021 and he was released, police said.
A little more than two weeks later, around 3 a.m. on Nov. 12, 2021, the Lubbock Police Department said they were called to a residence, where they found Aundra Singletery, 38, suffering from a stab wound to the chest.
Brasfield was located and agreed to talk to police, officials said. He said he did not know Singletery and he had smoked “speed,” which caused him to become paranoid before stabbing Singletery.
