She was found dead in her apartment several hours later when firefighters responded to a fire alarm.

Her body was partially burned and she had been beaten. Harris’ hands and feet were bound with duct tape, police said.

Cervantez and Mallory had been fired from the store at the Hulen Mall during the Summer after being suspected of stealing nearly $18,000 from the store’s safe.

Police believe the pair killed the woman and took Harris’s keys with plans to steal Black Friday profits of about $50,000 from the store, according to the affidavit.

The day after Harris’ murder, Cervantez was caught by surveillance cameras trying to open the doors to the store, but they had already changed the locks.

Mallory and Cervantez were taken to the Fort Worth Jail where they were booked on the capital murder warrant.

Both were questioned and denied involvement, the affidavit said. Bond was set at $500,000 each.
