Dad Charged With Capital Murder in Kids’ Deaths

HOUSTON (AP) _ The father of two children is facing capital murder charges for allegedly slaying them during an apparent murder-attempted suicide.

The Houston Chronicle reports 33-year-old Pedro Enrique Rosabal has been charged with capital murder in the deaths of his daughter, 8-year-old Osiris, and son, 6-year-old Onasis.

Police spokesman John Cannon has said the two children were found shot to death in a car Tuesday and their father shot himself in the head.

Rosabal is on life support and in critical condition at Ben Taub General Hospital.

Cannon said police had been looking for the children after their mother reported to authorities that her estranged husband had called saying he planned to drive them to an unknown location and kill them.
