Brockton Man Charged with Murder of Woman Leaving Church

Frank James Webb, III, of Brockton, was arraigned yesterday morning in Brockton District Court on Massachusetts Murder Charges in connection with the death of Jennifer Teixeira, 51, who was shot in the back as she was leaving church.

Webb has been charged with 1st Degree Murder and Gun Crimes Charges.

According to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, Frank J. Webb, III, got into an argument with another man this past Saturday inside a Boost Mobile store in Brockton. At some point, the argument became physical, at which time a man wearing a red hooded sweatshirt went outside the store and and from the street, started firing from a handgun. One of those shots, however, struck Jennifer Texeira, who had just left the Mount Moriah Baptist Church.

According to Plymouth County prosecutor, four witnesses have allegedly identified Frank J. Webb, III, as the shooter wearing the red hooded sweatshirt. They also allege that he, along with another man wearing a grey sweatshirt, ran down the street after the shooting. Several witnesses, however, reportedly followed the men and allegedly observed Webb remove a handgun from his waist area and attempt to hide it in nearby bushes.

Following his arraignment on 1st Degree Murder Charges in Brockton District Court, Frank J. Webb, III, was held without bail. Additionally, his bail on a separate criminal case was revoked where he had previously twice been arrested for the Drug Crime of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance.
