He’s a repeat offender, too.

Talk about a shocking twist that no one saw coming.


A Smith County jury has found a Tyler man guilty of killing a gas station clerk during a robbery, and now the trial is in the punishment phase.

Dameon Jamarc Mosley, 28, is charged in the fatal shooting of Billy Dale Stacks. Stacks was working as a clerk at a Conoco gas station in Tyler on Jan. 28, 2017, when he was shot several times during an armed robbery.

The verdict came in early Wednesday morning. Earlier in the day, the prosecuting and defense attorneys presented their closing arguments in the case.

Mosely was indicted in April 2017 on charges of capital murder by terror threat and aggravated robbery. Mosley has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

During the punishment phase of the trial, Tyler police officers testified about Mosley’s criminal history. Two of them spoke of Mosley’s involvement in a robbery that occurred at a Chevron convenience store located on Gentry in October of 2014.
