Police say murder and aggravated assault charges are being filed against a 13-year-old boy and his 12-year-old girlfriend after a shooting that left a suburban Dallas woman dead and her husband wounded.
Garland police said Wednesday the youths were taken into custody soon after 46-year-old Darlene Nevil's body was found in her home.
Her husband, 48-year-old Alan Nevil, was in a neighbor's front yard and told police who shot him. Police say he underwent surgery at a Dallas hospital and is in stable condition.
Garland police say the wife died the day of the Aug. 17 attack and the husband died on Sept. 2.
Authorities say they found a handgun they believe was used to shoot the couple.
Police won't reveal the nature of the children's relationship to the Nevils. The youths are being held in a juvenile detention center.
