HOUSTON (AP) — A funeral is set for a Houston couple and six children who authorities say were shot to death in their home by the mother's former domestic partner. After the service Monday in Houston, the family will be buried in La Crosse, Wisconsin. David Conley faces capital murder charges. Authorities say he handcuffed most of the family members and eventually shot each in the head.
Killed in the Aug. 8 shooting were: Conley's former domestic partner, 40-year-old Valerie Jackson; her husband, 50-year-old Dwayne Jackson; 13-year-old Nathaniel, 11-year-old Honesty, 10-year-old Dwayne, 9-year-old Caleb, 7-year-old Trinity and 6-year-old Jonah. Authorities say Nathaniel was Conley's son with Valerie Jackson. The Jackson's were the parents of the other five children.
