ECTOR COUNTY - An Ector County inmate accused of viciously killing his wife on Christmas Day won't be headed to trial.
L. C. Davis, Junior, died Sunday night at a local hospital.
Officials say he had been battling cancer and was put under hospice care in April.
He died two days after being taken to the hospital.
Davis was accused of shooting both his wife and his stepson last December.
Her son survived, she did not.
Davis was arrested two days later after leading police on a chase from Midland to Odessa.
