DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - A man wanted for a murder in Denison earlier this week was booked into the Grayson County Jail early Saturday morning.

Denison Police issued a warrant Friday for Manuel Miguel Wise charging him with murder in the death of Matthew Kyle Williams.

Wise, 31, was booked into jail around 1:15 a.m. Saturday. Lt. Mike Eppler says Sherman Police Department responded to Motel 6 in Sherman where they found a man who was later identified as Wise.

Wise falsely identified himself and gave the name of a relative who had an outstanding warrant. During the pre-booking process, it was determined he was Manuel Wise.

He was arrested for the outstanding Murder warrant relating to the Kyle Williams homicide and also for three other outstanding Grayson County warrants.

Police began investigating William's death Thursday morning, but neighbors we spoke with said they heard what could have been gunfire Wednesday night.

The block off Tower Lane and Armstrong in Denison could be described as a ghost town.

With the crime scene tape gone and no police presence, you would never know authorities were investigating a homicide at unit number nine less than 24 hours ago.

"The victim in yesterday's homicide was Matthew Kyle Williams, 35 years-old," said Denison Police spokesperson Lt. Mike Eppler.

According to his Facebook page, Williams went to Denison High School and Grayson College.

"He was taken to the Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office yesterday for an autopsy and the cause of death was gunshot," Lt. Eppler said.

Neighbors affraid their safety told News 12 they believe Williams was shot the night before.

"Around 11 o'clock I heard a noise and I didn't know if it was a gunshot,"
recalled a neighbor.

She said she then saw a car speed off and thought that noise was the car backfiring, but noticed the front door to unit nine open.

The next morning, she said the door was still open and noticed the screen on the side window was broken.

She then called the apartment owners to check it out who then called police.

"We're still investigating, talking to people, soliciting information from anybody that has knowledge of what happened and certainly if anyone has knowledge to contact the police department," said Lt. Eppler.
