“Road rage suspect to remain in federal custody for postal worker's murder”

The man charged with the murder of a postal truck driver in Dallas will remain in federal custody after a Monday court hearing.

Investigators said Donnie Ferrell, 25, confessed to police the night he was arrested for Tony Mosby’s murder. Mosby was driving along Interstate 30 near downtown Dallas when he was shot and killed a week ago.

…If found guilty, Ferrell could get life in prison with no parole or he could face the death penalty. Former U.S. Attorney for North Texas Richard Roper said if prosecutors go for the death penalty, it would involve the highest levels of the Justice Department.

“From the testimony presented at the detention hearing, I think they presented -- so far -- a compelling case,” Roper said.
