According to the Houston Chronicle, 25-year old Eric Norris is in custody and being questioned in the crime that saw two masked gunmen bust into a private high-stakes home game and led to the murder of Leonetti, the wounding of another in attendance and the theft of $20K (originally thought to be $8-9K).

Leonetti was a well-known Missouri City businessman who was popular for his likable personality, his T-shirt design company and his enjoyment of the game of poker.

Norris is being questioned, as there are other suspects still at large, but murder charges are expected to be filed shortly.
