Darrell Roberson came home from a card game late one night to find his wife rolling around with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway.
Caught in the act with her lover, Tracy Denise Roberson — thinking quickly, if not clearly — cried rape, authorities say. Her husband pulled a gun and killed the other man with a shot to the head.
On Thursday, a grand jury handed up a manslaughter indictment — against the wife, not the husband.
The grand jury declined to charge the husband with murder, the charge on which he was arrested by police.
“If I found somebody with my wife or with my kids in my house, there’s no telling what I might do,” said Juan Muniz, 33, who was having lunch Friday with one of his two small children at a restaurant in the middle-class suburban Dallas neighborhood where the Robersons lived. “I probably would have done the same thing.”
I love that Texas allows “shootings that are reasonable at the time.”
