Austin Murder Suspect Arrested In College Station

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ A third person has been arrested on charges that he conspired to fatally shoot an Austin-area jeweler in the jeweler’s home earlier this year.

Twenty-one-year-old Johnny Roman Leon was arrested Wednesday in College Station on a charge of criminal solicitation of capital murder.

Court records show investigators believe Leon conspired with 19-year-old Nicolas Patrick Shaughnessy to kill Shaughnessy’s father, Theodore Shaughnessy, on March 2.

The younger Shaughnessy is being held at the Travis County jail on a $3 million bond. He and his wife, 19-year-old Jaclyn Edison, also are each charged with criminal solicitation of capital murder. Edison posted bond last month and is no longer being held.

Leon is being held at the Travis County jail on a $3 million bond. Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
