A 57-year-old man allegedly killed his wife and two teenage sons because he had a headache and was tired of their shout.
The man identified as James Lee Webb was arrested and charged with capital murder after calling the cops on himself on Monday, August 31, 2020.
According to the affidavit for arrest warrant, Webb and his wife, Victoria Ronack Bunton, began arguing at around 10am on Monday morning after he complained of having a headache and that her sons, aged 13 and 16, were being too loud.
During the argument Webb allegedly produced a handgun and shot his wife before killing his two teenage sons.
The suspect reportedly waited one hour before calling the police and confessed to the crime.
When cops arrived they took him into custody. When Webb was interviewed he allegedly told a detective that he was tired of his family yelling at him and telling him there was nothing wrong with him.
He is currently being held at Lew Sterrett Jail and his bond will be determined by a Dallas County Magistrate.
The couple’s neighbor, Chanel Lockhart told Fox4 that Webb’s wife was nice to everybody.
“Last time I saw her, she was getting groceries out of the car and the boys were helping her.
“You would never think that he would do that. And she had a heart. She was so sweet to everybody.
“You’d never think that one day he would call and say he killed his kids.”
Another neighbor, Justice Johnson, told the outlet,
“I’ve been knowing them for two years, going with their mama to the grocery store, helping with groceries, getting on the school bus.”
Her daughter, Sylvia, added,
“I didn’t talk to them as much. But when I did come outside, they’d speak. They didn’t just walk past me. They’d be like, ‘hey.’”
