A man already facing two aggravated assault charges has been accused of fatally shooting a woman at a Greater Inwood apartment complex in 2018, according to Harris County court records.
Damarion Gulley, 44, has been charged with murder in the shooting death of 34-year-old Cassie Washington, court records show. Gulley was previously charged with felony aggravated assault in connection to alleged incidents in October 2020 and February of this year, according to court documents.
The Houston Police Department said one of its officers was conducting a welfare check at the Linda Vista Apartments at 5500 De Soto St. the evening of Aug. 21, 2018, when the officer found Washington dead on the living room floor with multiple gunshot wounds. She had been reported missing the previous day, according to HPD.
According to police, Gulley and Washington had previously dated, and HPD said additional investigation identified Gulley as a suspect in the incident.
Court records show Gulley was convicted of misdemeanor assault stemming from incidents in 1997 and on Aug. 19, 2018 -- one day after he allegedly killed Washington, according to court documents.
