CORPUS CHRISTI - Homicide detectives solve the last unsolved murder of 2012 with charges filed against Matthew Sean Grier for the the killing of a man found in a burned home.
On December 19, 2012, a firefighter found Michael Andrew Martinez's body in an apartment on 7th Street. Police say the person who set the fire did so to cover up the murder.
The medical examiner ruled Martinez died from stabbing injuries.
Grier is already in custody. He's being held at the Texas Department of Corrections Byrd Unit in Huntsville for an April conviction for driving while intoxicated and evading arrest.
