WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Matthew Liggins, 28, of Abilene on April 17, 2018, in Wichita Falls.

According to the arrest warrant, following the arrest of the alleged shooter, Eric Lee II, detectives listened to a call between Lee and a woman who stated she knew "Precious" was with Lee at the time of the incident and he needed to tell his lawyer that information.

A Crime Stoppers tip to the WFPD named Precious Tillery as the second suspect involved in this shooting, according to the arrest warrant.

On May 31, 2018, a witness, that was in the vehicle at the time Liggins was shot, was reinterviewed by detectives. During the interview, she was shown a photo lineup with a photo of Tillery, 19, and five other women with similar features.

The witness positively identified Tillery as the second person involved in the shooting. The witness said Tillery had a firearm and threatened her with it and was possibly the suspect who struck her in the head, according to the arrest affidavit.

The witness also said the pair took an unknown amount of K2 in a black lock box during the crime. Based on her believed participation in the robbery, a capital murder warrant was issued for Tillery on Friday, June 1.

Tillery was arrested and booked into the Wichita Co. Jail without incident where she remains on a $2 million bond.
