2 dead in Wichita Falls family violence

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) — Wichita Falls police say two people died, one was hurt and two children safely hid in a closet in a family violence case.

The Wichita County Sheriff’s Office says 28-year-old Benjamin Prince was jailed Monday on capital murder and aggravated assault charges. Records clerk Winnter Harper told The Associated Press that no bond had been set for Prince.

Police say 23-month-old Trebian Prince and 20-year-old John Prince died in Sunday morning’s attack. The toddler suffered a head injury. The man was shot.

Police say 25-year-old Nicole Grant was shot in the shoulder. United Regional Health Care nursing supervisor Clint Lee says Grant was treated and released.

An 8-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy were unharmed.

Police did not immediately release any relationships between the suspect, who was arrested at the home, and the victims.
