EDINBURG, Texas - A jury in Texas will soon be deliberating in the murder trial of a man accused of killing a Manitoba couple 25 years ago.
Evan Squires, 70, and his wife Wilda Squires, 65, of Minnedosa, Man., were snowbirds who regularly spent the winter months in Weslaco, Texas.
The seniors were shot and killed in their mobile home in the Magic Valley Trailer Park on Nov. 13, 1988.
In 2011, police made an arrest after allegedly matching a DNA sample to feces found at the crime scene.
Arturo Almaguer, 44, has pleaded not guilty to capital murder charges.
