A South Texas man has been charged with killing two men and wounding another in an alleged dispute over child discipline.

Nueces County Jail records show 23-year-old Noe Salinas of Bishop was being held without bond Monday. Salinas is charged with capital murder of multiple persons and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

No attorney was listed for Salinas, who was arrested after Sunday's gunfire.

Bishop police Chief Larry Lawrence says Salinas and 22-year-old Juan Arnulfo Casso each apparently has a child with the same woman. Salinas allegedly disciplined the other man's daughter and Casso confronted him.

Casso and 32-year-old Mario Lee Briones were killed. A third man with them has non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators recovered a gun from a nearby roof.

Bishop is 30 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
