GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — A Chicago man selling magazines door to door has been accused of raping a 78-year-old Dallas-area woman and setting her on fire.

The victim was assaulted Monday at her home, doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire. Detective John Brimmer says she was hospitalized Wednesday with second-degree burns. Her name has not been disclosed.
Brimmer says information from another salesperson led them to Neal. He was arrested on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault Tuesday night in Fort Worth and was in jail Wednesday pending an initial court appearance.

LEAGUE CITY, Texas — Police in League City, Texas, say a hit-and-run driver in a fatal crash apparently left a note expressing remorse near the victim's body.
An investigator who asked to be identified only as Detective Aldridge said Tuesday that no arrests have been made in the death of 34-year-old Maurice Jones.
The note was scribbled on paper from a spiral notebook. Aldridge says the note may have been written by a woman but he declined to reveal more details.
Jones' body was discovered in a ditch Sunday morning, hours after he got off work at a fast-food restaurant and was walking home.
League City is about 25 miles southeast of Houston.
