Who needs details in Texas? “He needed killin’” is a legal defense ;)
What a bunch of idiots. Newsflash - here are the FACTS that a happy yellow journalism reporter didnt care to obtain before printing the article. Rodney was NOT an ex-husband, he still lived in the house when his wife wasnt on-gain/off-again and taking her meds, the father-in-law was not an EX and the shooting (as it turns out) was not in self-defense. This case is going to the grand jury for a murder charge.
