Man found guilty for 2014 double homicide in Amarillo

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A man accused of a double homicide in 2014 was found guilty on Friday and faces life in prison with no possibility of parole.

The girl said she heard her mother and an unknown man shouting over one another, followed by more gunshots. The girl, who was hiding under her bed during the shooting, crept out of her bedroom to find her mom in the living room with gunshot wounds and her father dead of gunshot wounds on the back porch.

The woman who was shot was taken to Northwest Texas Hospital where she later died of her injuries.

Nga Lone Aung, 43, was developed as a suspect based on communications he had with the female victim on Facebook.

Aung was apprehended in Liberal, Kansas where officials located his vehicle.

According to 47th District Attorney Randall C. Sims, a jury found Nga Lone Aung, 43, guilty of capital murder of multiple persons on March 15 after a two week trial.

The State did not seek the death penalty, making the defendant’s punishment life in prison with no opportunity for parole.
