Court of Appeals of Texas, Sixth District, Texarkana
On Appeal from the 203rd District Court Dallas County, Texas Trial Court Nos. F-12-70903-P, F-1151316-P, F-1151317-P, & F-12-70740-P

State, 402 S.W.3d 894, 895 (Tex. App.—Dallas 2013, no pet.); see also Tex. Code Crim. Proc. Ann. art. 103.006 ("shall certify" costs). Under the authority of Rule 34.5(c)(1) of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, we order the Dallas County District Clerk to prepare and electronically file, within ten days of the date of this order, supplemental records containing a ...
