TYLER (KYTX) - Tyler investigators were able to track down a murder suspect in a stabbing Saturday night. John Grimes was arrested early Sunday morning a few hours after Tony Jeter,65, was found dead in his home.

"He was a happy go-lucky guy, he didn't meet anyone that he didn't  make friends with," said the victim's step-brother Charles Sanchez.

Saturday night Sanchez found his brother dead, he had been stabbed in the neck.

Referencing his brother, Sanchez said, "He had too good a heart."        

The victim was born with mental disabilities, as a result, his brother says he was often too trusting and too willing to help any one.

"They took Tony's money, eat his food lived off him," Sanchez said.
  
The man police say is allegedly responsible for his death is Grimes. SSanchez believes Grimes and his brother were acquaintances.Grimes is facing capital murder charges.
     
"While in commission of the burglary he committed the homicide, so that makes it capital murder," said Tyler Police public information officer Don Martin.

Tyler investigators quickly tracked down grimes.

"We were contacted by a person that stated that suspect borrowed his phone, overheard him say he had killed someone," Martin said. "Aanytime we have a case, this type of case, investigators are called to the scene and they start from ground zero."  

Police say they can move forward faster, because someone heard something and said something. Police are protecting that person's identity.

"That other person contacted us with  critical information to the case that allowed the investigators to put together the pieces to the puzzle," said Martin
