Man charged after 8 found shot dead in Texas home


HOUSTON: A man who engaged police in a standoff at a Texas home has been charged with capital murder after the bullet-riddled bodies of six children and two adults were found inside, officials said Sunday. They had been shot, some multiple times, and many were restrained with metal handcuffs, lead investigator Sergeant Craig Clopton told reporters. The deputies initially tried to contact residents inside the home before spotting a child’s body through a window, Chief Deputy Tim Cannon told reporters. They then forced their way in and were peppered with gunfire and withdrew. Negotiators from a high-risk operations unit later convinced the alleged assailant to surrender, Cannon said. Police have identified the man as David Conley, 48, a former domestic partner of Valerie Jackson, who died in the attack.
