Ryan Munsie, 31, was delivering food to a Texas apartment when she was killed on Saturday evening in what appears to be a robbery gone wrong.
The two suspects, who are both 14-years-old, allegedly stabbed Munsie in the neck while trying to rob her.
It appears that the only thing stolen from Muncie was a cellphone that was later found in a nearby dumpster, not far from where the suspects live.
The teens’ names have not been released as they are minors. Their names will be released if the state chooses to prosecute them as adults, but that remains unclear for the time being.
Munsie lived in Haltom City with her husband and three children, ages 5, 10, and 11. She was working for Uber Eats on the side as a way to make extra money.
Sgt. Eric Peters of the Haltom police said, “It ended up being just a random thing where these two juveniles were out looking for somebody to rob and just ran into her.”
The suspects are both being held at the Tarrant County Juvenile Justice Center in Fort Worth and are facing capital murder charges.

Flavaine Carvalho was working at Mr. Potato restaurant in Orlando on New Year’s day when she noticed odd behavior from one of the families she was serving.
According to Carvalho, the whole family ordered food except for a young boy. When she asked if there was an issue with the food that was preventing the boy from ordering, she was told that the boy was going to eat at home later.
Despite this answer, something still didn’t sit right with Carvalho. Upon closer inspection of the boy, she noticed that he had several bruises and scratches on his face and arms.
“A couple of minutes later I wrote a sign asking him if he needs help and this is when he nodded yes and make a movement with his hands like he didn’t know what to do. That’s when I called 9-1-1 and a couple of minutes later the police came and took over the situation in an amazing way.” Said Carvalho. She held the sign up behind the boy’s parents so that they were unable to see it.
Police responded to the scene and interviewed the boy. He alleged that he had been abused at the hands of his step-father, who had tied him up, hung him from a door, hit him with a broom, and handcuffed him. He also alleged he was denied food as punishment.
Doctors found several bruises on the boy and said that he was twenty pounds underweight.
The 11-year-old boy was removed from the home, as well as another child who’s four-years-old.
Police arrested the stepfather, Timothy Wilson II, and charged him with three counts of aggravated child abuse and child neglect. The boy’s mother, Kristen Swann, was charged with two counts of child neglect.
“What this child had gone through, it was torture.” Said Erin Lawler of the Orlando Police Department. “If Ms. Carvalho would not have said something when she saw it, that little boy would probably not be with us, much longer.
