More Charges Filed on Murder Suspect

by Ramonica R. Jones

An East Texas teenager accused of murder is facing even more charges. Tommy Middleton is now charged with deadly conduct and two counts of aggravated assault.

He's accused of unloading dozens of rounds from an AK 47 unto his neighbor's home in Trinity County. That shooting left a 50-year-old Onalaska woman dead.

Middleton was reportedly worried the family would hurt a small pet alligator he'd put in a pond behind their home.

He opened fire onto the residence, but one of those stray bullets hit Dody Peroutka. She was leaving the restroom of a nearby bar when a bullet went through the building hitting her. Peroutka died at a hospital.
