Tavores Henderson appears in court on murder charge

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said a Crime Stoppers tip led to Thursday’s arrest of Tavores Dewayne Henderson, a fugitive who is charged with felony murder in connection with the death of Nassau Bay Police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan, nearly two days after he’s accused of committing the crime.

Henderson was taken into custody at what authorities believe may be his girlfriend’s home in the 4200 block of Heritage Trail.

Henderson appeared in court on Thursday night. He was led to the courtroom shackled in a set of Sullivan’s handcuffs.

Henderson spent about 20 minutes in court as the judge spoke about bond amounts on the murder charge as well as other charges. He’s facing at least three charges in Harris County and another in Galveston County.

“Mr. Henderson, in the murder case I’m setting your bond at $150,000. That’s taking into account that you have a felony bond pending that you forfeited which means you didn’t show up for court. Which is now set at zero and you have a new misdemeanor charge for assaulting a family member … out of Galveston County for attempted theft where the judge has set that bond at $20,000,” the judge said.

While Henderson is being held on a $150,000 bond on the murder charge, he’s being held on no bond on one of the other charges.Judge sets bond at $150K at Tavores Henderson’s first court appearance on murder charge
