Co-defendants Stephen Brockway of Frisco and Chansamorn Pokai of McKinney have trial dates set for June 24 and July 22, respectively. Brockway and Pokai have been in custody for capital murder with remuneration since 2015 for their alleged connection to the murder of Richard Moore, who was found dead in his McKinney home due to a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber long rifle to the head.
According to arrest warrants and affidavits, Pokai and Brockway are suspected of coordinating a hit on Moore to cash in on his $1 million life insurance policy. Ronald Rosser of Longview was sentenced to life in prison in March after a jury found him guilty of Moore’s murder. According to arrest affidavits, Moore’s daughters believed Pokai and Brockway were having an affair during Pokai’s marriage to Moore, and one of his daughters accused Pokai of being “mentally and physically abusive” toward Moore.
The affidavit also stated Pokai’s cellphone records showed she’d deleted text messages with Brockway, including a message to Moore’s daughter that told her not to go home from school the afternoon of Moore’s death. The deleted messages and Pokai’s denial of infidelity was “a clear indication to law enforcement of deception,” the affidavit states.
Pokai and Brockway have been held in the Collin County Jail since 2015 on $1 million bonds. Check apps.collincountytx.gov/judicialrecords for more updates on the trials.
