Texas man charged in deaths of mother, stepfather

Associated Press -

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A man accused of fatally shooting his mother and stepfather has been charged with capital murder.

Travis County authorities say 41-year-old Carlos Whitcomb was taken into custody Saturday and charged. It's too soon to say if prosecutors will seek the death penalty against him.

Travis County Sheriff's Office spokesman Roger Wade says a neighbor found 60-year-old Kenneth Payne and his 62-year-old wife, Phyllis Payne, dead in their home.

Wade says Whitcomb lived at the home with his mother and stepfather in the eastern part of Travis County in central Texas.

Authorities are still investigating and have not revealed a possible motive.
