Teen's Murder Trial Continues in Trinity County

by Ramonica R. Jones

Testimony is underway in a teenager's murder trial in Trinity County. Police officers and a Texas Ranger have been among those testifying so far.  

Nineteen year-old Tommy Middleton is charged with deadly conduct and two counts of aggravated assault. Investigators believe he unloaded dozens of rounds from an AK 47 into his neighbor's home in Trinity County last April.

That shooting left a 50-year-old Onalaska woman dead.

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

The trial is expected to wrap up Wednesday.
