2 more arrested for Preston Hollow woman’s murder
DALLAS - Two additional suspects were arrested for the murder of a Preston Hollow woman.
Leslie Baker was shot in an attempted carjacking in her driveway on Memorial Day.
Dallas police said 18-year-old Antony Taylor and 19-year-old Deng Ajack admitted to their involvement in the murder.
A third 16-year-old suspect was arrested three days after Baker was killed. His name and photo were not released because he is a juvenile.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, surveillance video from one of Baker’s neighbors captured video of a stolen silver car speeding away from her house around the time of the murder.
Additional surveillance video showed Taylor and Ajack getting out of that silver car, along with another suspect.
In the report, Taylor told police that on the day of the murder, his juvenile friend picked him up in a stolen Nissan Sentra. He said Ajack was also in the car, along with a fourth person known as Migo.
Taylor said he knew the 16-year-old shooting suspect “had a gun” because they posed together with the weapon outside the vehicle.
Taylor said they were “smoking weed and they were driving around” on Azalea Lane towards Royalton Drive in Preston Hollow when the juvenile suspect spotted Baker and then “parked in her driveway and he drove from behind her and parked,” blocking her in.
Taylor said the 16-year-old jumped out of the Sentra and was going to carjack Baker. Seconds later, Taylor “heard several shots and ducked down.”
According to Taylor, that’s when Ajack jumped in the driver's seat of the Sentra. The juvenile suspect climbed back in through a window, and they sped off towards Preston Road.
Several neighbors heard the gunshots that day.
Shortly after, police say the Nissan Sentra was photographed driving through the Mockingbird tollbooth southbound on the Dallas North Tollway.
Security cameras later captured the teens getting out of the car in a parking lot.
Later that night, Taylor allegedly used the same gun believed to have killed Baker to shoot at a car belonging to a Lyft driver. Investigators says a ballistics report linked the gun to both cases. The Lyft driver identified Taylor from a police lineup.
One of Baker's neighbors said early on that he believed more than one person was involved in her murder.
All three suspects are now charged with capital murder.
