Defense for man accused of killing 2 A&M siblings
BRYAN, Texas (AP) - A coroner has described how six bullets allegedly fired by an ex-boyfriend of a Texas A&M student led to the deaths of the woman and her brother.
The defense was to begin Thursday in Bryan for 26-year-old John Thuesen, who is charged with capital murder over the March 2009 slayings. Thuesen was taken into custody at the College Station home where 21-year-old Rachel Joiner and 23-year-old Travis Joiner were found shot. Travis Joiner also attended A&M.
The prosecution rested Wednesday.
Dr. David Dolinak with the Travis County Medical Examiner's Office testified that each victim was shot three times.
Prosecutors have suggested Thuesen was jealous after seeing Rachel Joiner with another former boyfriend.
