Arrest in 2014 Murder

A murder confession after more than two years.

“This was a very brutal crime,” BCSO’s James Keith told KTSA News. “The way this man lost his life is just horrific.”

Forty-year-old Omar Hartfield confessed to Bexar County Sheriff’s investigators to killing Benjamin Ross back in 2014.

“(Ross) was shot and then his body was set on fire, along with his car,” Keith said.

This happened more than two years ago along 281 South.

“When our investigators were talking to (Hartfield), trying to figure out what his motive was, he claims there was an argument over the theft of drugs that led to this shooting,” he said.

Hartfield will be charged with murder. He was already at the Bexar County Jail on an unrelated parole violation.
