Houston police probing constable's shooting death
HOUSTON — Two people have been arrested and charged with capital murder in the shooting death of an off-duty Harris County deputy constable.
A spokeswoman for the Harris County District Attorney's Office, Donna Hawkins, tells the Houston Chronicle says the charges were filed Thursday against 31-year-olf Lee Eldridge Sonier (SAHN'-yay) and 40-year-old Judy Lucille Hambrick, both of Houston. Online court documents show both remain in custody, but no attorneys are listed.
Police said officers responding to a 911 call before dawn Tuesday found 47-year-old Deputy Constable Ronnie Earl Brewer fatally shot in his car.
Police say investigators are pursuing leads in the case.
