Quest continues for lawyer for Angelina double-murder suspect

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A man accused of killing a Lufkin woman and her brother in July was in court again Tuesday as the judge works to figure out who his lawyer is.

District Judge Paul White called on Terrance Barnes, 31, and asked him for any additional numbers to call. Barnes walked up to the judge and supplied him with a handwritten list of names.

"You have different names here now," said White, referring to Monday, when Barnes supplied the judge with a non-working number for his mother, who Barnes says is finding an attorney for him.

"My mother, two aunts" said Barnes.

"You personally don't have money do you?" said White.

"I didn't say that," said Barnes.

"Do you?" said White.

"No. They do," said Barnes.

"Ok. If I'm unsuccessful in reaching anyone this week, I will appoint you a capital murder defense lawyer," said White.

Authorities believe Barnes stabbed his girlfriend, Rosa Pina, and her brother, Pepe Pina, to death at their residence on John Kolb Road on July 26. He was arrested in the area that night, following a massive manhunt. Authorities say he confessed to the stabbings.
