    Boy, 7, dies in apparent tresspass shooting - Crime & courts- msnbc.com

    HOUSTON - A 7-year-old boy who was allegedly shot in the head by a couple who thought he and three other people were trespassing on their property died Saturday, authorities said.

    Donald Coffey Jr. died Saturday morning at a Houston hospital, less than two days after the boy was struck in the head by shotgun pellets, Sheriff's Cpl. Hugh Bishop said.

    Sheila Muhs and her husband, Gayle Muhs, both 45, were charged with second-degree felony counts of aggravated assault in the shootings Thursday. They were being held at Liberty County Jail with bail set at $25,000 each and had not yet retained an attorney, Bishop said.

    Death for trespassing?

    Sounds a tad excessive to me.

    Sheila and Gayle?

    I didn't realize that they allowed gay marriage in Texas.

    Yes, it does, but it also stipulates that you must use discretion and reasoning on a level above that of gorillas.
