Zodiac Club Murder Suspect Indicted


One man has been indicted on murder charges following a December 2014 shooting in Odessa.

Kortney Lynn Powell, 29, was indicted on Monday in connection with the murder of Lester Starling, 26 at Billy’s Zodiac Club.

As NewsWest 9 reported, the shooting happened on December 27, 2014 just after 1 a.m.

In an interview with NewsWest 9, Steve LeSueur with the Odessa Police Department, said, “Investigation reveals that three subjects had been shot at the Zodiac night club. One of those subjects, unfortunately was pronounced deceased on scene and the other two were taken to Medical Center Hospital with serious bodily injuries.”

The family of Lester Starling told NewsWest 9 back in December, they believe Starling was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

No word yet on a possible trial date.
