Death penalty sought in West Texas double slaying
A West Texas man accused in the fatal shooting of his estranged wife and her brother could face execution if convicted.
Prosecutor Allison Palmer this week filed her intent to seek the death penalty against Brian Berry.
Berry was caught in Andrews after the bodies of Keri Berry and Brandon Block of San Angelo were found July 28 at her home in Wall. Block's wife was critically hurt.
Tom Green County jail records show Berry was being held on charges of capital murder of multiple persons and attempted murder. An attorney for Berry didn't immediately comment Thursday.
Berry's mother, Anita Berry, faces allegations of helping him flee. She's free on bond after being charged with hindering apprehension.
