GARLAND, Texas — Police say murder and aggravated assault charges are being filed against a 13-year-old boy and his 12-year-old girlfriend after a shooting that left a suburban Dallas woman dead and her husband wounded.
Police spokesman Joe Harn said the youths were taken into custody after the shootings Tuesday in Garland.
Harn said police found 46-year-old Darlene Nevil’s body in her home, 11 miles northeast of Dallas. Her husband, 48-year-old Alan Nevil, is in stable condition at a Dallas hospital.
Harn said Nevil told police who shot him and his wife.
Authorities said they found a handgun they believe was used in the attack.
Police won’t reveal the children’s relationship to the Nevils. The youths are being held in a juvenile detention center.
