Suspect arrested in Arlington pastor’s murder

| March 5, 2011

ARLINGTON — Arlington police arrested a suspect Saturday in the murder of NorthPointe Baptist Church Pastor Clint Dobson and the assault of his ministry assistant, Judy Elliott.

Steven Lawayne Nelson, 24, is being held pending a charge of capital murder. He was arrested at an apartment complex in the 2400 block of Brown Boulevard around midday Saturday — about a half-mile from the crime scene.

Police swarmed the Woodbridge complex and surrounded the apartment where Nelson lived with his mother.

"I had just woken up, and I heard like banging… like them banging on his door, and then I overheard them on the intercom," said neighbor Anthony Otting. "They were like, 'Come out with your hands out.'"
