A Wichita Falls man is accused of threatening to kill his girlfriend over her tablet.

He went to the wooded area behind the home. Officers were able to locate all the stolen items except the victim's phone. He returned to the home and he sees the police and runs to the wooded area again.

Police found Carmoney three days later, hiding at Barwise Junior High School, under an outside stairway, behind the school.
