Texas Father Accused Of Killing Drunk Driver Responsible For The Death Of His Two Sons

ANGLETON, Texas (AP) - The trial of a Southeast Texas father accused of killing a drunk driver in a fit of rage after his two sons were fatally struck on a rural road is expected to begin.

Opening statements were expected Tuesday in the trial of David Barajas in Angleton.

Authorities allege Barajas shot Jose Banda after the December 2012 accident near Alvin, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. The accident claimed the lives of 12-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb.

If convicted, Barajas faces up to life in prison.

Barajas' attorney, Sam Cammack, says his client didn't kill Banda.

No witnesses have named Barajas as the shooter and authorities never recovered a weapon.
