A 35-year-old man has been booked for the murder of his younger sister, authorities said Saturday.

Michael Horton was arrested for the murder of Jennifer Horton, 34, whose body was found inside a residence on the 14200 block of Broadway, in Cabazon around 5:50 p.m. on Jan. 27, Riverside County Sheriff's Department Lt. Jeff Buompensiero said.

Buompensiero said Horton— who authorities had identified as a person of interest in the case— was found around 12:30 p.m. Friday in Banning.  Once he was questioned, he was arrested.

"After further investigation by Investigators from the Central Homicide Unit, Horton was arrested for the murder of Jennifer Horton," Buompensiero said.

Jail records indicate the man was taken to the Banning jail, where he was being held on $1 million bail.

Unfortunately Jeremiah you will be tattling on someone for doing something annoying but not unethical or illegal. And it is the COMMENTS section of an open forum. So like I said while it is annoying quit your crying

No your crying annoys me as her ad annoys you ...so the issue I am taking is at your crying and stupidity. Your interpretation doesn't matter it is wrong! Quit with your "Washy you don't belong here crap"
Washy February 03, 2014 at 10:21 AM
Oh I think no other lawyers do that (here) because it is a WASTE OF TIME.....But if you would like I suppose I can find you another forum or two where other lawyers do the same thing. Do you need me to do that for you? Who wipes your nose?

What are you on about, Washy? You're not making a lot of sense here. Are you saying you want lawyers to be able to post advertisements on every article about crime that the Patch posts? Thank goodness most of them seem to be more ethical than that. **** Jeremiah

Its krazie how people can treat one or the other whatever caused mike to do this to his sister must've been pretty serious and unacceptable for him to act out...i'm not saying. What he did was right..its just sad...how things ended up between siblings.
