Odessa teen accused of shooting parents appointed guardian

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - A teen that confessed to shooting and killing his parents in Odessa earlier this month has been appointed a guardian.

According to Gabe McDonald's lawyer Justin Low, McDonald's aunt, Karen Hargrove, was appointed guardian of him on Wednesday.

This will allow the defense access to McDonald's medical and school records to give to a psychologist for an assessment

Low says this was crucial for the defense and a necessary step to prepare for the case.
